In this outrageous, Spanish-language Mexican sex farce, Carlos Bonavides stars as Genaro, a Mexico City resident clamoring to escape from a veritable mountain of bad debt. His desperation prompts him to undertake such extreme measures as turning to a local loan shark (despite the shark's penchant for shuttling out violent enforcers to collect on unpaid debts). His fate turns a promising corner when he receives notice that his great-great aunt just died and named him the chief beneficiary of her religious shop. Sensing opportunity afoot, he immediately wrests control of the Veracruz-based business and converts it to a sex shop, hoping to score with lusty local patrons.
