The protagonist of The American: La Pelicula is a small Mexican bird that is obsessed with an American hero, justly called “The American”. This is a superhero like those who come out in the movies, so he has many followers.
One of them is this little bird, that wants to know it at all costs. To do so, he will have no choice but to cross the border between the two countries, something that will not be easy for him.
The little bird believes that his hero has a value out of the ordinary, but he has never thought that he can be a superhero for his own, something that will happen soon and that he would never have imagined it.
Something is going to happen that will require of him whatever value he has available, so that he will realize that he also has courage if the situation requires it, especially if his family is involved.
