The story of one of Spain`s most famous delinquent, based on his book.El Vaquilla,a gypsy boy from Campo de la Bota,a very tough and poor ghetto were the police is afraid of entering even at daylight.With only eight years old he steals cars and drives,and with eleven his already the leader of a gang of modern out laws.Living a life of armed robbery`s,mugging and bag snatching.He is sent to prison at only thirteen years of age because his already escaped from every reform school around.Juvenile delinquency,poverty and misery are witnessed in this film,together with a good sound track.
The film is done on a low budget but it is still very entertaining to watch,and at the same time dramatic.It shows the life of a kid fighting for his liberty in a life let loose on it self.Spain in the 70`s and 80`s had a very high percentage of delinquency,which created a lot of popular out laws and gangs of thieves.El Vaquilla was one of them,and today is the only remaining surviver of that generation that was destroyed by Heroin and Aids.Today he still lives in a maximum security prison in Barcelona.He is 40 years old,and still fighting for his liberty!
Low budget but done with a lot of heart and soul!
