SYNOPSIS ENGLISH
The Mayor offers an intimate understanding of the current situation in Mexico from a side of the spectrum rarely accessed: someone in a position of power. Fearless, and surprisingly affable, Fernández has no qualms about how he gets his job done, nor do his residents seem to mind. Since his election, crime rates, though still high, are down.

SINOPSIS ESPAÑOL
Mauricio Fernández es el polémico alcalde de San Pedro Garza García, el municipio más rico y seguro de América Latina. Un personaje que se presenta a sí mismo como una figura capaz de mantener su municipio “limpio” de la presencia de los cárteles de la droga sin importar los métodos para conseguirlo. “El Alcalde” describe una etapa salvaje de un país marcado por la violencia y el desprestigio de la clase gobernante.
