Julio Hernández Cordón (Buy Me a Gun, I Promise You Anarchy), one of the most original and prolific directors of his generation, returns in his latest film to Texcoco, the town on the outskirts of Mexico City where he grew up, and recently the site of a canceled new international airport. Accompanied by his teenage daughter, Fabiana, and the actor Francisco Barreiro—who plays nine different characters—the director creates a whimsical, subversive, and genre-bending family portrait in which father and daughter tour the playground of his childhood while in search of a vanished lake, Aztec rulers, and werewolves.
