After their girlfriends have departed to Europe, Julio (Gael García Bernal) and Tenoch (Diego Luna) are free to make their own holiday plans. Julio comes from a lower-middle-class setting, while Tenoch's father is a high-ranking political dignitary. At a wedding they encounter Luisa (Maribel Verdú), the Spanish wife of Tenoch's cousin Alejandro, who stirs their sexual curiosity. They invent some mythical secluded beach on the Oaxaca coast and tell her they want to go there, hoping she will come along, but she declines.
A few days later, she has changed her mind and agrees with the plan, which is problematic for the boys because they do not know how to find a place like the one they described to her. They enlist the help of their drug-supplying friend Saba (Andrés Almeida), who gives them rather hazy instructions, as well as figure out how they are going to get a car.
During the trip, sexual banter between Julio and Tenoch takes place, in which it gradually becomes clear that they have been sleeping with each other's girlfriends. At first, this revelation is met with disgust and anger, which later gives way to some degree of excitement at the thought. They also battle for the sexual favors of Luisa, who sleeps first with one, then with the other one, but later teases them that they should really be having sex with each other. Luisa is seen crying when she is alone.
