'Gueros' is a road movie in which the slacker travellers barely manage to leave town. It's 1999. Fede and Santos are currently striking against the strike which their fellow-students are organising at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico. They are joined by younger brother Tomas who has brought a cassette containing the music of Epigmenio Cruz. They say his songs moved Bob Dylan to tears. When the trio learns that their idol is in hospital fading fast and alone, they set off in their rusty heap of a car to pay their last respects to this one-time rock star. What they thought would be a simple trip to find their childhood idol, soon becomes a voyage of self-discovery across Mexico City's invisible frontiers.
