The president of Mexico announces a war against the drug cartel run by the Barillo family. In retaliation, the Barillo cartel backs a military coup led by General Marquez. The US government is trying to stop this coup with the intervention of CIA Agent Sands. To make sure that the coup fails, Sands forces the greatest hitman of all-time, the legendary El Mariachi, out of retirement. EL Mariachi is haunted by the death of his wife and daughter years ago, and he does not want to fight ever again. However, Sands backs him onto a corner that leaves him no choice. El Mariachi calls upon the help of his two brothers to stop the assassination of the president by General Marquez’s troops and the Barillo cartel’s gunmen.
