The heart of the story is the change in El Bola's life, at almost all levels, after befriending this new classmate.The film poignantly parallels the lives of a caring father unable to connect with his willful son, and that of distant Pablo (El Bola) and his abusive father who is incapable of giving him the love he needs.  Stars Juan José Ballesta and Pablo Galán.  Unrated, but rated 15 in the UK.  In Spanish with optional English subtitles.
