GÜEROS is the latest film from Ariel Award-winning director Alonso Ruizpalacios. Sombra and Santos are two Mexico City slackers whose drifting is interrupted by the arrival of Tomas, Sombra’s little brother. Tomas convinces the two older boys to find an ailing folk singer in the city, and the group sets out on a darkly comic journey that leads them to places none of them ever expected.
