Opening with a spectacular car accident and then interweaving the stories of the three victims: AMORES PERROS stars Gael Garcia Bernal as Octavio, a young man who has fallen in love with his violent brother’s wife and futilely pleads with her to leave him; Goya Toledo as Valeria, a beautiful Mexican model for whom physical appearances are everything; and Emilio Echevarria plays El Chivo, a former guerrilla whose hard existence and time in prison has killed his passion for life. Their lives meet in this tragic accident, and dogs are their common bond.
