Mari, a guitar-playing mariachi man of mucho machismo, is out for revenge! Mierda, the local drug lord, has murdered one of Mari’s “many, many favorite womans” and, in escaping, shot Mari’s hand. Now the hitchhiking musician is on the hunt for Mierda and his thugs. With help from Buscame, his new favorite womans Carolina, and fellow “marichichis,” Mari seeks to take down the cigar chopping villain once and for all.
Can a mariachi guitar player overpower such a strong militia with just his street smarts and stunning good looks? Will Mari defeat the demons of his nightmares while looking for own true love? And will his little amigo, Nino, ever learn to become a real mariachi player in such a corrupt town?
Don’t miss the answers to these questions, the beautiful womans of Gorilla Tango Burlesque, and maybe even a small cameo by Quentin Tarantino himself! ¡Arriba! Ages 18 and over only.
