In a story loosely based on Pope John Paul II’s 1988 visit to Latin America, the shabby Uruguayan border town of Melo prepares for hordes of Brazilian pilgrims expected to descend and add material salvation to the spiritual salvation the Pontiff will surely bring. Smalltime smuggler Beto hatches a scheme that involves rather less effort than churning out mountains of burgers or brewing lakes of beer: he’ll build a private washroom where people can relieve themselves after the festivities!
