La alternativa de Tristan

Cinema Pendent Projects


Sixteen-year-old Tristan has French and Spanish roots. His quiet life with his mother, Blanca, in a town in Extremadura is thrown into question when he begins training as a bullfighter. La alternativa de Tristan tracks him from his teenage years to his debut as a professional matador, following his daily life, activities, doubts, fears and training.
