Armando Alvarez is the heir to a Mexican ranch, where he has lived and worked all his life. Meanwhile, his brother, Raul, has a successful career as an international businessman. However, the ranch soon comes into some financial troubles, with Armando at a loss for what to do.
Fortunately - and conveniently - for Armando, Raul arrives back at the ranch with his new, beautiful fianc'e, Sonia, in tow. Raul learns about the financial difficulties and assures Armando that he can sort out their father's debts, to the joy of the family, as well as Armando.
Things quickly become complicated, now that Raul has moved back in. Armando falls for Sonia, who doesn't exactly discourage his advances. The two embark on an illicit affair but in the midst of their passion, they fail to discover that Raul's business dealings are not as legitimate as he'd like them to believe. Armando, Raul and Sonia not only find themselves in a love triangle; they also find themselves in a dispute with Mexico's most feared drug lord: Onza.
A parody of classic Westerns and melodramatic Spanish telenovelas, Casa De Mi Padre is already billing itself as 'the biggest international motion picture of all time'. The film is directed by Matt Piedmont, who was been a writer for Saturday Night Live between 1996-2002.
