Cumbia Callera (2007)

Framed by the high mountain chains that surround the city of Monterrey (Mexico), three youngsters live passions and dilemmas, roaming between the steep slums and the luxury districts, crowned by the irresistible rhythm of the "colombia regiomontana".

Cumbia Connection is a love story, which centers on La Cori (Fernanda García Castañeda). La Cori, a teenager of abrasive and savage beauty, finds herself in the middle of a love triangle between El Neto (Oliver Cantú) and El Guipiri (Andul Zambrano). El Neto, a young middle-class filmmaker, becomes fascinated with La Cori and, without her knowledge, follows her around; filming her beautiful body's every move. Little by little, his obsession brings him closer her essence, but also brings him face-to-face with his rival, El Guipiri – La Cori's lover. The confrontation between El Neto and El Guipiri caused by their love for the same young woman, and the attraction between the three teenagers, seduced by the mysterious magic of the music and dance to the rhythm of Colombia of Monterrey, create "Cumbia callera".
