Summary
  • When in San Pedro de los Saguaros, the mayor is lynched by a group of indigenous people, the old junkyard operator Juan Vargas is named the Temporary Municipal President. This makes him believe that his dream of power is going to come true; but when confronted with the problems of the place, he decides to resign. However, his boss obliges him to stay by telling him that he's been touched by Herodes Law and gives to him the constitution as an aid and a gun. He soon discovers the delights of power applying the law along the way and provoking reactions that get out of control
  • Después de que un ex-alcalde corrupto sea asesinado por campesinos, Juan Vargas, un pobre portero, es nombrado el nuevo alcalde de una localidad árida del México central en 1949. A pesar de que trata de modernizar el pueblo, llevando paz y progreso a sus ciudadanos, pronto se da cuenta de que no hay nada que hacer para luchar contra la corrupción...excepto también ser corrupto. Paso a paso, ayudado por su pistola, Juan Vargas se convierte en la ley y en el peor alcalde de la historia de la localidad
