A Piñata manages to escape her destruction from a birthday party but after falling in love, she realizes that what she really wants is to be beaten. Through a fantastic story about love and pleasure, the short film explores the masked violence that we live day by day, the prohibitions, and the rules that determine our intimate and social behaviour to fulfill our personal desires. Dulce Dolor is a metaphor for the honesty that everyone should have to himself or herself. Just like a sadomasochistic Piñata, it doesn’t matter how hard we try to suppress our instincts and our true self, it will always surface in our infinite quest for happiness, desire and pleasure. Even when the fulfillment of our deepest desires involve our self-destruction.
