Jesús López



Jesus Lopez plays like a thousand movies and Springsteen songs about teens
seeking to escape the sticks for a more heroic life.


Jesus Lopez, a young racing driver, dies in an accident. His cousin Abel, a drifting teenager, is gradually tempted to take his place with his family and friends, until he lets himself be possessed by his cousin’s spirit.
