In illegal immigrant-bashing 1994, Los Angeles investment manager Jon Seda (as Richard Macedo) gets in touch with his Hispanic roots when he's kidnapped and roughed-up in Mexico. South of the border on business, Mr. Seda encounters street gangsters, corrupt cops, and transvestites. In order to escape being shot by the former, the conservative Seda dresses up as the latter. The pretty blonde Seda won't go down on Mexico's policemen, preferring straight sex with exotic dancer Itatí Cantoral (as Patty). He ignores advice from swishy Paul Rodriquez (as Poncho), who ditches Seda when the first handsome hunk beckons. "I feel like a fish out of water," Rodriquez says.
The film's rules for survival in Mexico, as outlined by Rodriquez for Seda, are:
1. "When having a drink anywheres, never ever, I mean never, leave your glass unattended,"
2. "When you're faced with danger versus going to the cops, always, always go towards danger," and
3. "Here in Mexico City, things are never, ever what they appear to be."
