Nero and Miguel are two brothers who never met but are forced into an existential journey to the funeral of their father, whom they never knew. Their fantastical tale pays tribute to memories of Samuel Beckett's play Waiting For Godot, and their humorous romp through the countryside of Spain bows to the opposites-attract camaraderie of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Along their voyage, they meet up with a cast of characters who act as guideposts in the brothers' journey to the meaning of life. The two men befriend a narcoleptic man looking for acceptance, a beautiful woman who throws watermelons, Nero's dream girl in a bed of sunflowers, and the ghost of their father who expounds on the secrets to enjoying life. For THE SOUL OF FLIES, Jonathan Cenzual Burley directed and shot his own script using only one camera, masterfully balancing the incredible scenery with this amusing and entertaining story about life's passage and the strangers we depend on along the way.
