Biographical film about the Spanish matador Miguel Báez "el Litri", a descendant of two generations of bullfighters: his elder brother touched the glory before he died at the age of twenty-two from a goring infected by gangrene. That is why his father begged everyone, especially the child's mother, to keep him away from the ring, but "El Litri" knew, from an early age, that his destiny was to succeed in the art of bullfighting.

As little kids Litri and Pelopunta go to a theater where Copper Canyon
is the movie playing. However, Litri, born in 1930, would have been 20 years old when that film was first released. Also, their reason to go to the theater is to see a documentary about Manolete
's latest bullfight playing before the movie, and Manolete died in 1947, three years before Copper Canyon's release, and when Litri is already an adult according to the movie. See more
