Manolo is a young man living in the post-war paradise of Mexico City, nerve center of the Mexican Empire. Xavier El Burro is the imposing titan who brought lucha libre back to a war-weary Mexico and won the hearts and minds of the entire population. It's through this lucha libre, however, that Xavier is using his money from hybridized narcotics to pull the marionette strings necessary to search for a rumored progeny.
Manolo and his friends see the elevated quality of life maintained by Xavier's men and actively strive to enter his ranks. After several high-profile gangster/luchadores wind up dead though, Manolo begins to have second thoughts about joining the largest cartel and lucha libre consortium in the Mexican Empire.
Will Manolo choose to serve Xavier?
Who is murdering Xavier's men?
