Starring Rafael Inclán and Humberto Busto

A high official of the Mexican political system decides to fake the capture and death of The Coyote, Mexico’s number one public enemy. To make this happen, he cuts a deal with his family, and informs them that he needs a dead body to pose as a double. Topillero, a hit-man with an unconventional sense of discipline and honesty, is responsible for executing the plan along with Blas, his right hand man. But on this journey, he is reunited with his wife and son, whom he abandoned years ago. Familia Gang is a road-movie about gangs and anti-hero families, filled with pitch-black humor and a particular resemblance to Mexico’s present-day reality.
