March 23 – El Baño del Papa (The Pope’s Toilet)

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.
