Gabriela Obregon crafts an enthralling origin story like any superhero deserves, but in this case it’s the story of iconic Mexican wrestler “El Santo” and his heir, “El Hijo del Santo.” This documentary delves not only into the world of Mexican luchadores but also into the challenges that a public figure with a secret life must wrestle with: family conflicts, professional rivalries, injuries, and fading stardom.
