(2020) (Luis Gerardo Méndez, Connor Del Rio) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramedy: Two half-brothers, who couldn't be more different and have never met before, end up on a road trip to solve a mystery left by their late father.
Decades ago, young Renato Murguía (IAN INIGO) was quite close with his father, Flavio (JUAN PABLO ESPINOSA), including sharing their love of all things airplane related. But after the Mexican economy faltered, Flavio ended up having to leave Renato and his mom, Tere (BIANCA MARROQUIN), to look for employment in America with the promise that he'd return.
But he didn't, and all of these years later, Renato (LUIS GERARDO MÉNDEZ) -- who runs an aviation company -- has acted like he doesn't have a father. All of which means he's not exactly primed to be the best stepdad to Emilio (MIKEY SALAZAR), the 10-year-old son of Renato's fiancée, Pamela (PIA WATSON).
His past, however, comes roaring back when he receives a phone call from Flavio's current wife that Flavio is on his deathbed and would like to see his son one more time. Renato is reluctant and only goes at Pamela's insistence. Arriving in the States, his dim view of American's is reinforced by interactions with the locals, including a goofy guy, Asher (CONNOR DEL RIO), who'd like the impatient Renato to buy his coffee.
Renato refuses and heads to the hospital where he not only sees his father, but also that man's grown son -- who just so happens to be Asher. Renato wants no part of either of them and leaves, only to learn that his father left him and Asher a riddle to solve.
Renato is again reluctant and wants to return to Mexico as he and Pamela are getting married in a few days, but ends up roped into a road trip with his half-brother who annoys him to no end. As their journey continues and Renato would like to solve the riddle as soon as possible, he eventually begins to have a different outlook on Asher.
