"Shot entirely in beautiful Patagonia, Argentina, by the great director Carlos Sorin, this film follows the relationship between a middle age working class man who has just lost his work, and a pedigree dog that is given to him as payment for a free lance job he has done at a Southern farm to get some money.
In the beginning, he doesn't know what to do with his new friend, but after a while, he realises that the dog will be the most important companion in his lonesome life; and perhaps, even help him make some profit."

"The simplicity of rural Argentina is reflected with honest endearment in this story.
"Coco" and "Bombon" speak loud with glances, half smiles and heart about the struggles of people that refuse to go down without a fight. Cinema like this, reminds us that the most amazing stories are played out by everyday people. If there was awards for Doggy acting, "Bombon" would walk away with all of them, is not what he does but what we see in him that will make you laugh and cry.
You can't miss this chance to be humbled by love, loyalty and a hero called Bombon."
