An Underlight Pictures Production of a film by Jacobo Concepción Cardona.

Eugenio has just turned nine years old and his attention has quickly focused on the opposite gender and their beautiful curves, thus affecting his schoolwork and social life. At home, Eugenio drifts off in his fantasy world. If it is not playing with his toy plane, Eugenio spends hours watching his favorite program, ‘The Crime Detective,’ where a mustachioed hero saves defenseless women from armed villains. 
Until one morning, puberty unexpectedly kicks in, leaving Eugenio with a full-grown mustache. Eugenio moves forward, surviving mockery and embarrassment, until discovering the origin of his condition and finding his place in the world.
