BY THE YOKE
Tracción a sangre
2017, Uruguay, 63′
“By the yoke” presents two families of waste sorters living in Montevideo, who are trying to get ahead after having lost their working tools: their horses.
While Daniel and Matias try, with the help of their labour union, to get their recently seized horse back, Marcelo and Alicia try to get a vehicle of their own so they can return the workhorse they've borrowed.
In the outskirts of Montevideo, we get to meet these endearing people in the privacy of their homes and through their daily struggles, while they get through bearing a very unfavorable reality, with optimism and perseverance.
