The classic storytelling lyrics of the corrido are woven into Mexico’s rich cultural history; stories of small Mexican communities and their iconic heroes. These heroes are ultimately betrayed, resulting in an untimely and violent death. Now adopted by Mexico’s narcotics trade, this documentary explores the corrido’s transformation and its effect on the urban culture. Live, raw and unrehearsed. The stories of Pancho Villa Jesus Malverde and the Valientes. A very real past and present experience through rural Mexico.
