Jesus wants to change his life san juditas, to do so he entrusts his destiny to Saint Jude Thaddaeus and decides to make a vow. In the end willpower isn’t as strong when life puts you up to the test; when customs and not faith are the real triggers of action.
After visiting the temple of Saint Jude Thaddaeus in Guanajuato, Jesus decides to make a vow. He promises that if he finds a job he’ll go back there and give thanks for it. He also promises not to drink or smoke until he manages to find a steady job.
His girlfriend and best friend, who witness this vow, don’t take him seriously. They know that Jesus seldom keeps his word; they’re convinced that as soon as he runs out of money he will start drinking again.
The next day Jesus visits his uncle in San Juditas, Sinaloa. He makes up stories about finding a job and asks him for a loan so he can travel back home. Even though his uncle is aware of how unreliable his nephew is, he gives him the money anyway and sends him on his way.

This is what happens with Jesús, the young man who by San Judas Tadeo’s inspiration takes on a risky adventure which he certainly won’t expect.
Through this story, director Alejandro Suarez Lozano shows us how faith is much more than just religion, it’s a way of living and feeling that helps us face life even in its most difficult moments.
Jesus is a young man who wants to change his life. He has decided to make a vow to Saint Jude Thaddaeus, patron saint of lost causes and impossible situations.
He has had enough of the misery, debts, parties and family problems that surround him. He wants to do better and to achieve his goals he is willing to make a sacrifice. Jesus has been working as a pastry chef since he was very young and that’s what he wants to continue doing.
But right now he works in a bakery that is about to close down because it can’t meet the demand for the more modern bakery products and supermarkets.
In order to fulfil his vow, Jesus starts looking for employment in the capital. His friends try to help him out but their good intentions lead him astray because they take him to a party where Jesus meets Marina, a girl from Madrid who lives with her parents, goes out with them and loves going to nightclubs.
Jesus doesn’t want anything else than fulfilling his vow but what happens when willpower isn’t as strong as life? When customs are stronger than faith?
