They are losers but they receive money for the fight that Ignacio uses to buy better food for the orphans. When the gorgeous Sister Encarnación comes to live in the monastery, Ignacio has feelings for her. When the monks discover his secret, Ignacio is expelled from the monastery.

Nacho (Jack Black) is a young man who was raised in a orphanage in Mexico and now works there as a cook. Fueled by his passion for lucha libre wrestling, he dons a mask and cape and picks up a partner to compete in a local Lucha Libre tournament to try for the 200-peso prize so he can buy better food for the kids and achieve respect. When a new nun, Sister Encarnación (Ana de la Reguera), arrives at the monastery, he tries to win her adoration as well, all while attempting to prove that being a Luchador isn't a sin and win the grand prize at a battle-royale tournament so he can buy a bus for the kids. - deac0n fr0st
