Troublemaker Tomás is sent away to live with his older brother, Sombra, who is studying in Mexico City. Arriving in the midst of a student strike that has shut down the university, he finds his slacker brother with his roommate Santos aimless with nothing to do, until Tomás decides they should travel around the city in search of his hero, their late father’s favorite folk-rock singer Epigmenio Cruz.
