All the men of the sleepy Mexican village of Tres Camarones have left town in search of fortune in the USA. Bandidos are threatening to take over the defenseless town. One night 19 year old Nayeli watches The Magnificent Seven at the local cinema and has a flash of inspiration. She grabs her Goth best friend Vampi and her gay confidant Tacho, and sets out on a quest of epic proportions – to find men in the U.S.A., smuggle them back across the border to repopulate and protect her beloved town! And so begins a 1,000 mile road trip from the Pacific Coast of Mexico through the colorful streets of Tijuana to the climactic scene at the Bahia Hotel in Mission Bay, San Diego.
Nayeli – Latina, 19. A smiley, Karate chopping heroine. Athletic, bright, strong-willed, and charmingly naïve, Nayeli is admired by loyal friends who, like her, share a bleak future in the poor Mexican village of Tres Camarones. Passionate and idealistic. Nayeli leads the epic adventure to el norte to bring back the men that will save their town.
Vampi – Latina, 19. Nayeli’s gothic best friend. They call her Vampi because she dresses like una vampira. Orphaned as a small child when her whole family was killed in a bus accident. She shrouds a goth exterior to protect her from all of the evils in the world. The only goth girl in the state of Sinaloa. Underneath the black clothes and dark eyeliner, Vampi is all heart. She just doesn’t know it yet.
