Summary
  • Bad day to go fishing: Jacob van Oppen, the former "strongest man on earth" and now an alcoholic, and his manager Orsini, who calls himself "the Prince," make a good living by traveling around small South American towns and organizing wrestling exhibitions. Arriving in Santa Maria, they are met with uncommon enthusiasm: the local newspaper wants to sponsor the fight, helping hands placard the town with posters, and an open call is made for a worthy adversary. Ever so resourceful, Orsini knows how to find the right combatant, but fishing in Santa Maria could lead to a bigger catch than he'd hoped for
  • Sofia: It's been four years since Sofia disappeared. Now, for the first time, she will have to tell her story
  • Nine mile walk: Two friends in a strange place begin a game of words that leads to an unexpected twist
