More > Old Man realizes the depth of the boy’s musical ability he sends him off on the quest to become a Mariachi. Arriving in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, the boy, Memo, teams up with a bus troubadour where they gain fame and notoriety. A Drug Lord, looking for a way to launder his ill-gotten gains, snaps the lad up to promote him for concerts and a way to make his dirty wealth spendable.
