Lola and the pulse wrestler

by Nicolás Cortés


Remo is strong and fond of arm wrestling. He is not the stereotypical muscle-headed man. When his wrist and heart are injured, he finds in Lola, an old woman who no longer has the strength to open her jars, an unexpected friendship. This is the story of how strong-looking men cope with the fragility and pain of grief that is not visible to the naked eye.
