User review:

In this modern Mexican crime drama, two handsome young private detectives are hired to investigate some possible criminal goings-on at a large estate owned by a wealthy widow by the name of Dona Josefina.

In spite of this seemingly impossible obstacle, they agree to go undercover as a gay couple and are welcomed by Dona Josefina with open arms.
