La Mesa Servida (The Table Is Set)

This short film is about a man who steals pigs, supposedly to eat with his wife. Set amidst a town where very few people get to eat meat, this story goes from odd to downright silly as the days pass by.

Note: NSFW due to some sexual scenes, but what an ending.

I'm the webmaster and author at I started this website as a complement to my studies in the Spanish language, but honestly, it just gave me an excuse to watch lots of great short films (like the ones in my author's picks section). I also blog and write short stories.
