A group of drunken men in a white taxi stop at Plaza La Ceiba in Zone 3 of Guatemala City. They ask Santiago González, a 67-year old Mariachi, for a couple of hours of music to mourn the passing of a friend of theirs. As the men in the taxi wept, “Los Camperos”, a band of mariachis between the ages of 66 and 71, all hurried to their own car. Work called.
