COLISEUM: THE CHAMPIONS [Coliseo: Los Campeones]
His parent's Lima tent show "El Coliseo" threatened with closure, strong-willed young dance impresario Marcial makes a bid to save the business and his family's livelihood by entering the national Huaylarsh dance pageant hoping to take the top prize. But this means taking a troupe of traditional Huanca dancers and infusing their staid routine with his modern flair. Their biggest rivals for the crown: Marcial's old troupe, the defending three-time champions.
