A boy named Miguel loves music and dreams of emulating the famous singer Ernesto de la Cruz. Miguel’s family earn their living as shoemakers and won’t allow anyone to play music.
Miguel learns what is behind this ban as he discovers his family’s history. He travels by accident into the world of the dead and meets his idol and the town’s hero, the now-deceased musician Ernesto de la Cruz. Miguel learns that de la Cruz betrayed Miguel’s great-great-grandfather, stealing from him the hit song that made de la Cruz famous. Miguel achieves recognition for his great-great-grandfather and from his family, who now accept his love of music.
