Director Alejandro González Iñarritu's internationally acclaimed debut film recounts three tales that unfold and intertwine on the brutal streets of Mexico City. Streetwise loser Octavio (Gael García Bernal) has an obsessive crush on his sister-in-law; Daniel (Álvaro Guerrero) dumps his family for a disturbed supermodel; and ex-guerilla El Chivo (Emilio Echevarría) cares for a wounded dog while planning an assassination.
