Born in El Paso, Texas, Saúl Armendáriz (Gael García Bernal) started his career as an amateur wrestler after growing up with a father who introduced him to the world of lucha libre.

As a gay man struggling to make his mark in the Mexican wrestling scene, he transforms himself into an exótico named Cassandro — becoming a trailblazing luchador who fights in drag.
