Dia De Los Muertos is an important day for many different cultures. It’s a day to celebrate those that we’ve lost and to display their images prominently in the belief that their loved ones can cross over to visit them in this world. Many of the celebrations involve music, that is except for one particular family. The Zapeteros family doesn’t celebrate anything with music, in fact, they don’t allow any music at all. That was all well and good until Miguel comes along, as the grows, so does the love of music. Only he has to celebrate his love for music in secret. Part of his passion involves his idol, Ernesto De La Cruz. Ernesto captivated audiences everywhere he went and in turn, captivated the world. On this day when the bridge between worlds is accessible, Miguel finds a way to go to the other side in search of his own history. What he finds there will astound him beyond anything that he could have imagined. Some new friends along the way will help to open his eyes to truly find the passion within his heart. Even with the obvious inspiration by the same idea as “The Book of Life“, there is something magical here there that cannot be denied. The subject may not appeal to everyone, but it is definitely family friendly for all ages. Should you choose to embark on this journey, stay into the credits for a touchingly beautiful dedication.
