This vivid pulsating vision of modern-day Mexico calls to mind Oscar-winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s 2001 debut Amores Perros.
Miguel and Johnny are young lovers and skateboarders who ride with their friends through Mexico City’s labyrinth of streets. Miguel earns money selling human blood on the black market, with paramedics as his most dependable clients. One day Miguel gets a hot tip: some wounded drug-traffickers are willing to pay big money for urgently needed blood. He enlists Johnny’s help, and the boys start working towards fulfilling the massive order, assembling family, friends and strangers – until their plan goes horrifyingly wrong.
