When her attempt to make ends meet working in the family business, selling quaint folk art door-to-door doesn't work out, she turns her artistic sights on Speeder, the Chicano punk band rehearsing across the street. She has ambitions to create a documentary portrait of the band detailing "the cultural poetics of Mexican American South Texas." The band just wants to make a music video. As artist and band collaborate, their simple plan to recreate a scene from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" in the middle of San Antonio's annual Fiesta celebration quickly spirals out of control. What follows is a mass media maelstrom of hijacked floats, kidnapped beauty queens, and an inevitable place in rock and roll history. Written by Jim Mendiola See less
