Chola and Football are a couple of street dogs that live in the Los Reyes skatepark. A microcosm is organized around them, composed of things, animals and young adolescents in conflict with an adult world that they reject but are required to enter.
This dogumentary follows two dogs who live in a skateboard park in Santiago, Chile. You get to know them quite well. While they are currently not owned, they clearly once were, back before they got too big. The big dog, Chola, still loves to play ball and contrives to carry balls to places where they will roll and push them off. The even bigger dog, Futbol, definitely has "fetch" imprinted deep within, and carries anything or everything around -- a dead soccer ball, a bottle of water, a empty can, a rock, even a large, heavy slate paving stone.
It's not an easy life -- the heat in the park looks extreme, there are some nasty biting insects, and Futbol is not a young thing anymore.
The movie has very little dialog, and what little there is disembodied chatter from the skateboarders. Interestingly, their lifestyles parallel those of the dogs to some extent. But the focus of the movie is on Chola and Futbol.
