Plot[edit]

Santos suffers with the divorce from Tetona Mendoza. The population in Sahuayo live and work with the group of regenerative zombies. When the group of females arrive to visit, Tetona orders Santos to eliminate the zombies. After Santos and Cabo Valdivia evade them, they learn that if anyone kills all zombies will become the town’s saviour. Santos challenges Peyote Asesino to make sure who will win the love for Tetona. The next day, Santos fails to kill one of the zombies at the park. After Cabo inspects the DNA cells, Peyote uses the truck with the singers to lure the zombies through the canyon cliff.

Despite Santos‘ failure, the officers inform him about the town’s abnormal situation. As the president, Tetona summons the female group of aliens from outer space. As Santos, Cabo and Peyote evade them, the three wander around town. At the science room, Santos and Cabo inspect the plate filled with the remains of the zombie virus. The aliens recruit Peyote, detain Santos and Cabo, and destroy the remains. The aliens imprisoned one of the male adults and force the female ones to work at the strip club. After Santos unites with his friends, they are forced to stay in prison. Cabo, revealing to be one of the zombies, asks Santos to protect him and the zombies, before the decontaminating population can annihilate them. Santos and his friends win the first round in the game of soccer, but the others plan to escape. After losing the game in the second round, Santos and his friends escape from prison, assisted by the Dark Charro and the group of saddlers.

Santos becomes a hero, and uses the DNA sample to spread the infection for everyone and revive the zombie population. Santos disguises himself as one of the decontaminated guests and confronts Peyote. The fight at the strip ensues, until Peyote slips an avocado, suffers a bone fracture and ends up on a mechanical wheelchair. Santos goes to the bathroom, urinates the smoking weed from the bowel that he accidentally swallowed and suggests Tetona to forgive him. The married couple have children.
