Synopsis: 

This engrossing documentary introduces us to Mexican millionaire mayor Mauricio Fernández Garza, a larger-than-life, frequently controversial politician unafraid of taking justice into his own hands. From his eccentrically decorated palace, he lorded over Latin America’s wealthiest municipality from 2009 to 2012.
