In a dense and highly detailed way the film explores the specific realms of Mexican wrestling and kitsch paintings.

The film shows an animation of treated photo images and elementary forms (circles, lines and planes) which are edited along with driving and hectic jazz. The imagery is a collage of devils and skeletons, cocks and mother’s milk, bare chests and breasts and touches the issues of sex, death and violence. Fast and jerky, the images undergo one treatment after another, giving rise to an associative vortex of kitschy Mexican sexuality.
