By Jose Jara

NO MANCHES FRIDA is the entertaining story of ZEQUI (Omar Chaparro), a recently released bank robber who goes to recover his stolen money, buried by his ditzy accomplice before he went to jail, only to find out that a school gymnasium at the Frida Kahlo High School has been built over the site. To recover the money, he realizes there only one solution to take a job as a substitute teacher. He meets the sweet and earnest, Lucy (Martha Higareda), as well as an unruly classroom. Lucy and her fellow teachers (Fernanda Castillo, Adal Ramones and Raquel Garza) have no control over the students, and Zequi comes in ready to lay down the law- but he quickly finds out that life on the inside may have been easier to deal with than a school full of wild and rebellious teenagers.
