    Santo works hard to cover rent and bills for him and his unemployed, unscrupulous yet charismatic roommate Patrick, while also caring for his ailing Grandpa. He longs for a more meaningful life but can’t get ahead. After inheriting an heirloom-wrestling mask, Santo discovers the mask gives him proverbial powers. When some low-life thugs accost Santo and his co-worker Abby, a sassy history major, Santo dons the mask and transforms into a powerful Luchador, allowing him to pummel the attackers with some crazy lucha libre moves. When Patrick hears the story, he immediately registers Santo in the underground wrestling circuit to profit off his roommate’s new powers. But when they discover the city has an underbelly teaming with supernatural villains, Santo sets his sights on a nobler quest.
