Alcohol helps turn a roomful of strangers into partners in storytelling in this drama. In 1903, as the Mexican revolution has just begin, a handful of soldiers, misfits and lost souls congregate at "Las Vueltas del Citrillo," a bar in Mexico City where pulque, a powerful drink made from the maguey plant which is thought to have hallucinatory properties, is the house specialty. Three fighting men -- Sgt. Collazo (Damian Alcazar), Jose Isabel (Jose Maria Yazpik) and Cabo Aboytes (Jorge Zarate) -- have taken refuge from the battles of the revolution at Las Vueltas del Citrillo, where they drink pulque and share stories with the beautiful Melba (Vanessa Bauche) and the bar's other patrons. Over the course of a long day of drinking, the three men and their new companions tell tall tales which involve love, war, politics and the common desire for peace, freedom and happiness that unites everyone on all sides of the revolutionary struggle. Las Vueltas del Citrillo (aka The Citrillo's Turn) was written and directed by veteran Mexican filmmaker Felipe Cazals.
