Julio (Gael García Bernal) and Tenoch (Diego Luna) are two seventeen-year-old best friends whose sexy, young girlfriends are headed to Italy for summer vacation. At a family wedding in Mexico City, the boys' attention is diverted by Luisa (Maribel Verdu), a stunning older Spanish woman, who is married to a distant cousin of Tenoch's.

As their journey progresses, all three companions find themselves confronted with their innermost demons and desires.
