We are introduced to the story by Johnny Bravo, a famous Acapulco cliff-diver, performing rituals with his eight-year-old son, Valentin, meant to rid the boy of fear. Bravo has him anthropomorphize fear when exposed to spiders, to heights, to sleeping in a mausoleum- into wolves, which Valentin can then chase away with a growl. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Those wolves make several appearances in the movie, taking the form of fears that Valentin didn’t know he had.
After a falling out with his father (probably over his questionable parenting methods), Valentin goes out on his own, ultimately becoming the biggest, most hedonistic, mooochingiest, not-paying-attention-to-the-rules-of-safe-sex-at-all-ingnest playboy in Acapulco. And the luckiest, too. find incredibly beautiful women in Mexican movies. Or Mexican soaps.
