After being told that her family had made some of the worst films in the history of Mexican cinema, documentary filmmaker Viviana García Besné spent many years distancing herself from everything the Calderón family had ever done. However, a chance encounter resulted in Viviana going on 3-year quest to uncover her family's involvement in the film business both in Mexico and United States. Her research reveals that their successes and failures throughout the 20th century closely mirrored that of Mexican cinema as a whole, a once-powerful film industry that is now virtually nonexistent.
