Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Also known as Family Adventure, Viva lo Imposible was adapted from Stargazing Bookkeeper, a stage comedy by Mihura-Calvo Sotelo. Manolo Moran plays a lifelong bookkeeper who decides to abandon his humdrum existence. Accompanied by his son and daughter, the bookkeeper searches high and low for thrills and adventure. The family's odyssey comes to a sobering conclusion when the father joins a circus, where he discovers that show business can be just as dull and plodding as the "real" world. Outside of the Big Top sequences, the film's funniest moments occur in a movie theater, where director Rafael Gil satirizes a "typical" newsreel.
