The Pope's Toilet

El baño del Papa

Brazil, Uruguay, 2007


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 paid toilet.
