The Pope’s impending visit to a small Uruguayan town stimulates a flurry of activity among the poorest residents, who hope to strike it rich by catering to the needs of the 50,000 expected pilgrims.

Convinced that his idea is the best, one man uses up his family´s savings to build a paying toilet . . . El Bano del Papa (The Pope’s Toilet) is a humorous and poignant story of dignity and solidarity that demonstrates the human impact of poverty and employment.

Ravn (Peter Ganzler), the head of an IT firm, has always told his staff that there was a mysterious, absent boss so that when difficult decisions needed to be made, he could put the blame on someone else. However when he wants to sell the company, he is required to get this shadowy CEO to appear and sign away the firm, and must get an unemployed actor, Stoffer (Jens Albinus), to play what becomes the role of a lifetime. The film deals with sex, power, and manipulation.
