A DIOS MOMO (GOODBYE MOMO) \ 107 mins \ Uruguay

Little Obdulio sells newspapers on the street to bring home a few coins for his family. His life is altered when he befriends the night watchman of the newspaper, a magical "Maestro," who will not only introduce him to reading, but also teach him the real meaning of life, using the lyrics of the "Murgas" under the spell of the God MoMo during the mythical nights of the Uruguayan Carnival.
