Pulling Strings

Genre: Comedy, Romance

Director: Pedro Pablo Ibarra
Starring: Jaime Camil, Laura Ramsey, Omar Chaparro


The main character, whose name is Rachel, is a diplomat for the United States. She is a career-focused, globe-trotting climber of the career ladder. Normally straight-laced and by the book, Rachel finds herself in Mexico City on the eve of her transfer to London, England. Being well-liked by her colleagues, a goodbye party is obviously in order, and that’s when the fun starts. Rachel, shall we say, has a few too many cervezas, and the price of her overindulgence is that she winds up blackout drunk in Mexico City. Cue the romantic hero: A good looking mariachi and single dad named Alejandro picks Rachel up from the gutter, brings her to his apartment, and nurses her back to health. Rachel, of course, has no idea where she is or how she got there, but everything is sorted out, and she’s grateful, at least at first.
