EIGHT TALES OF PEDRO begins in 17th Century Mexico, as Pedro and his companion travel from a small port town into the fabled Veracuz, telling stories while following Pedro’s one true love. Meanwhile, in the present day, in a van full of Mexican immigrants, Peter crosses a border into an unfamiliar country, while his companions tell him stories to chase away his fears. The two storytellers risk everything, as their lives and plots intertwine.
