"Considered as a whole it's a wonderful and hilarious phenomenon, most of it is executed to Dadaist perfection"

In an attempt to save the ranch, Armando's younger brother (Diego Luna) returns to his former home. However, his corrupt ways force Armando into a battle with Mexico's most feared drug lord (Gael García Bernal).
