12-year-old Miguel lives in the Mexican small village in family of shoemakers and secretly dreams to become the musician. Secretly — because in his family clan music is considered a damnation. Once his great-great-grandfather left the wife, Miguel's praprababka, for the sake of a dream which doesn't allow to live quietly to Miguel now. Since then the musical subject in family became a taboo. Miguel finds out what between him and his favourite singer Ernesto de la Cruz, now deceased, exists certain — still unnamed — communication. The fellow goes to the idol to the Country of the Dead where meets souls of the ancestors. Miguel gets acquainted there with spirit trickster by the name of Hector (in shape of a skeleton) which becomes his conductor. Together they move off in de la Cruz's searches.
