Four years ago I traveled to Portugal to search and learn more about the life of a bullfighter out of intense curiosity.

They’re all there, chatting in small pockets around the room, except now the chatter has stopped and they’re counting down to the moment when the fireworks will burst outside the open window — 2021, hugs…
