Mexico, 1949. The fable of a janitor turned Mayor on a little town lost in the Mexican desert, who gradually realizes how far his new acquainted power and corruption can get him.
This movie's release was forbidden for several years. From the time that filming started, the Mexican government wasn't very happy about it; mainly because it presented a bad image of that administration. The filmmakers fought back, and the conflict reached the press. So the movie had to be released, to avoid rumors about political censorship.
No me hables en inglés hijo de la chingada; ahora si, pinche gringo, se acabó la deuda externa!
