In the tradition of Nacho Libre, Chencho tells the comic story of a poor boy from a small town in Mexico, who has dreams of marrying the lovely Eloisa. Eloisa however does not feel the same way. Facing an arranged marriage with Chencho, Eloisa runs away to the US with her best friend Carmen, where her cousin Bambi promises her a job. What Eloisa doesn’t know is that Bambi runs a strip joint and has plans to make money of his beautiful cousin. Chencho is heartbroken but decides to follow Eloisa into the US and find her. On the way, Chencho’s naiveté lands him in all kinds of trouble, but his determination and love may ultimately pay off.
