An unlikely ranchero star finds fame on both sides of the Mexican border in this mockumentary comedy drama satirizing our celebrity-obsessed culture. When Jonathan French (Spencer John French) was just three years old, his parents were stoned to death bylepers. Subsequently adopted by his Mexican nanny (Lupe Ontiveros) and her God-fearing husband (Danny Trejo), Jonathan grew up to become a hard working janitor and gardener, eventually adopting the name Juan Francés. When Juan turned 33, he was blessed with a beautiful singing voice by the Virgin of Guadalupe. Over time, Juan sharpened his musical skills by performing in front of modest crowds at East L.A. soccer bars. In the wake of a successful performance at a prominent music festival, however, the burgeoning singer became a bona fide superstar on the Mexican pop charts. Eventually, Juan becomes so wrapped up in his own fame that he changes his name to "El Guero," and makes the leap from ranchero music to Reggaeton. Just when it seems that Juan'sidentity couldn't become any more clouded, a sensitive secret from his past prompts him to question everything he's ever known, and make a tough choice about who he really wants to be.
