Film Description:
"This parable is told by a street-wise dog who frequents a Mexican marketplace, observing life from the underside. He tells the story of the rise to success of a man who sells tomatoes in the market. The tale illustrates the importance of ingenuity and motivation to success. Discussion themes include tolerance and respect, the value of schooling, the individual and authority, peer pressure, and values."
