Tito

32 minutes

Tito lives on a mountain in Panama, is a rebel and doesn’t listen to anyone.

Which is why he makes a terrible decision: he buys a coffee farm instead of getting an education. Tito is now stuck, chained to a system that will keep him poor.

But Tito doesn’t give up without a fight. He will spend the next 30 years trying to prove he hasn't made the worst decision of his life.
