    • Synopsis
    • When the students of the National University go on strike, good friends Sombra and Santos begin to find interesting ways to fill their days. This routine is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of Tomás, Sombra’s kid brother. Unable to fit-in amongst these older slackers, Tomás discovers that unsung Mexican folk-rock legend Epigmenio Cruz has been hospitalized somewhere in the city. Tomás convinces Sombra and Santos they must track him down in order to pay their final respects on his deathbed. But what they thought would be a simple trip to find their childhood idol, soon becomes a voyage of self-discovery across Mexico City’s invisible frontiers.
