The high flying, Rey Mysterio may be small in stature but he’s a big presence in the world of wrestling. Bringing the fun of lucha libre back to the ring, the masked wrestler has become a figure who kids and adults want to replicate. Of course wearing a luchador mask doesn’t mean you’ll be able to imitate the moves. That requires practice.
Ignacio (Jack Black) holds a secret desire to become a luchador, which is forbidden at the monastery where he works as a cook. His desires get the best of him and he assumes the identity of Nacho Libre in an effort to win money for the orphanage as well as to win the favor of Sister Encarnación.
