Plot – Bucho, a drug dealer, lives with his gang in a small Mexican town. "El Mariachi", a former bizarre and reckless guitarist, is following him: he buzzes around the reddish dust town with his guitar, but in the custody there are guns, bullets and a small missile as well. Among the inhabitans there's Carolina, whose library is a convenient hiding place. "EI Mariachi" visits many bars and clubs, sometimes playing his music and sometimes shooting at bad guys.
