Grandfather Cheno... and Other Stories

El Abuelo Cheno... y Otras Historias

The murder in 1923 of Juan Nepomuceno Perez Rulfo "Cheno", a landowner inthe Mexican state of Jalisco in Mexico and the grandfather of the director is the excuse that takes us into the world of the old inhabitants of that place.
