Gueros 2014
After young Tomas (Sebastian Aguirre) pulls one stunt too many, his mother sends him to live with his older brother Federico (Tenoch Huerta, "Get the Gringo") in Mexico City. Tomas finds his brother and his friend Santos (Leonardo Ortizgris) broke and directionless in the face of the 1999 National University strike, but when he reawakens them to an old cassette tape of their dad's from unsung Mexican folk rocker Epigmenio Cruz (Alfonso Charpener) and then discovers the old man is dying in the hospital, the threesome take off on a road trip to pay their last respects in "Gueros."
What begins as a simple trip becomes an odyssey across the city as they get caught up in a rolling series of events and neighborhoods, the scope of the city like a country unto itself.
