Los Reyes (The Kings) is the oldest skatepark in the Chilean capital of Santiago. This story is about the real kings here: Football and Chola, two dogs that have made their home in this open space full of hurtling skateboards and rowdy teenagers. The energetic Chola loves to play with the balls she finds lying around. She positions them at the edge of the bowls while Football looks on impatiently and barks until she drops the balls. The teenagers around them have their own story, which they recount to us in voiceover. But the film centers almost entirely on the subtle interaction between the two dogs, as they play with a ball, a stick, a stone and each other.
