i saw this movie when a was very small, but what i remember is that this is basically the story of a young group of friends, who are committing a bunch of petty thefts, but then the opportunity arises for them to score a much bigger prize, things don't go as planed, they end up hiding out in a small Mexican town, during easter week, the towns people are curios to find out something about their new visitors, they come up with the story that there engineering students or something, there in town working on this big protect that will in the long run mean progress for the small town and it's inhabitants, everybody falls for the story, the towns people embrace them, they even invite them to participate in their easter celebrations including the good Friday recreation of the passion of Christ, the leader of the young group of hoodlums is cast as Jesus, all of a sudden one of the young men decides hes had enough of the small town an he decides to go back home, against the advice of his friends, back home the young man is picked up by the cops, he is interrogated, and he quickly gives up his friends, meanwhile back in the small town the young thief's are making themselves at home, there even falling for some of the towns girls, good Friday comes along, and everyone is oblivious to the fact that the cops are on their way along with the young Judas who is ready to finger his former friends, this film is a little campy like a lot of Mexican movies from the 70's, but it's still entertaining.
