Poster for Mexican film Ánimas Trujano (The Important Man)

Ánimas Trujano is a colorful but irresponsible Indian in a small Mexican village. He hopes above all things someday to be chosen mayordomo of his village, a place of great honor usually conferred upon the wealthiest and most respected citizens. Ánimas has a loyal wife, but cheats on her and gambles away every cent they raise. Chances arise for Ánimas to turn over a new leaf and even hope realistically for the honor of mayordomo. But will Ánimas behave responsibly enough to take advantage of these opportunities?
