El Vendedor De Humo

The smoke seller - Jaime Maestro / 2012 / Tale / Spain / Without dialogues / 06'22" / /


A peddler arrives to town offering an amazing product: to make people’s dreams come true, for a fair price, of course. The locals are actually too busy to fantasize, so the peddler is going to have to use all his charm to attract them and make some money before everything disappears like a dream and they wake up.
