Although this Mexican romp stars popular, flamboyant singer Gloria Trevi, it was a box-office flop because audiences were put off by the vulgar situations within the story. Playing a dual role, Trevi plays an innocent but rebellious school girl, Gloria, and a notorious drug runner "Las Grenas." The latter is in deep trouble with some gringo gangsters after she cheats them out of $2 million. When she learns that Gloria is her doppelganger, she convinces the girl to pretend to be her corpse in a funeral. Among the more objectionable scenes is one in which Gloria, is punished by her principal and forced to clean out the latrines and handle human waste, something the girl does with relish and glee.
