Alejandro Fernandez is a passionate Mexican Mariachi who loves entertaining the people of Mexico City almost as much as he loves his delightful young daughter. Life is tough as a single father barely scraping by on his earnings from singing, so when he attempts to obtain a visa for his daughter to visit family in the States, it's not surprising how swiftly he is turned away. However, he could be in for another chance when coincidentally he and his best friend Canicas land a gig at the promotion party of Rachel; the woman who rejected his visa application. When she winds up getting inebriated to the point of falling asleep in a bus shelter, Alejandro helps her home where she discovers that she has lost her boss' very important laptop that was entrusted to her. Alejandro decides to prove he deserves the visa by helping her track down the machine, while finding more than just a friend in her along the way.
'Pulling Strings' is a romantic comedy about a man whose desperation to give his daughter a future leads him on a slightly immoral path that could hurt his chances in more than just one way.
