"A look at the life of Cuban author Reinaldo Arenas, from childhood in Cuba to his death in New York City. His writings and homosexuality get him in trouble with Castro's Cuba and he spends two years in prison before leaving for the United States. Victimized by a government that banned his books and jailed him for a crime he didn't commit, [poet] Reinaldo [Arenas] endured unspeakable persecution in a courageous stand against censorship and oppression. Without a country, but not without integrity, he fled to America where he continued to fight for personal expression and produced a stirring body of work."--Container

Ignacio, soprannominato Nacho, è un frate addetto alla cucina di un convento nella provincia messicana di Oaxaca che si prende cura di una comunità di bambini orfani. La passione di Ignacio fin dall’infanzia, però, è il Lucha Libre, l’equivalente messicano del wrestling americano: il frate, infatti, trascorre gran parte del suo tempo a disegnare costumi coloratissimi da lottatore con i quali sognare di diventare un campione. Le cose per Nacho cambiano quando al monastero arriva la nuova insegnante, sorella Encarnación, della quale si innamora istantaneamente, ma anche quando, nel tentativo di difendere un sacchetto di patatine destinato agli orfani, si scontra con l’homeless Esqueleto. Esaltato dalla presenza della nuova maestra e desideroso di cimentarsi nella lotta, Nacho convince Esqueleto a fare squadra con lui e a tentare la fortuna nei circuiti minori, nella speranza di farsi notare da qualche grosso manager. Gli esiti sono disastrosi, ma l’inatteso denaro guadagnato permette a Nacho di garantire pasti di migliore qualità agli orfani del monastero. L’ambizione è però quella di diventare lottatori professionisti, per cui, dopo essersi introdotti senza invito ad una festa organizzata da Ramon, il manager del campione Ramses, i due sono spinti dallo stesso manager ad iscriversi ad un torneo di tutti contro tutti, al termine del quale, se saranno risultati vincitori, potranno avere l’onore di sfidare Ramses. Nacho ed Esqueleto partecipano al torneo, ma Nacho è sconfitto in finale. Deluso, lascia il monastero per andare nel deserto, ma viene invitato a tornare dopo poco dai bambini (in realtà, nonostante le apparenze, è rimasto nei paraggi) e da Esqueleto, che ha rotto volontariamente il piede allo sfidante di Ramses per garantire a Nacho la sfida. Durante il combattimento, Nacho è messo in difficoltà dal campione, ma l’improvviso arrivo di Encarnación e dei fanciulli che indossano la sua maschera gli dona una nuova forza per riscattarsi e battere con pieno merito Ramses
