The film takes place in a remote region (Cuetzalan and Yohualichan in the State of Puebla) of present-day Mexico where a majority of the population speaks Nahuatl as their mother tongue.

The movie's plot exploits a historical mistrust and conflict between Native Inhabitants of the region, represented by the Nahuatl-speaking inhabitants and the Spanish-speaking mestizo who identify themselves as being of higher social class and call themselves "Gente de razon". Intertwined in this main conflict there is a second conflict which opposes the view of a traditionalist priest (Ignacio Lopez Tarso) who sides with the Spanish-speakers and a more liberal priest who better understands the synchretism between Roman Catholicism and Indigenous beliefs. Both priests are Roman Catholic in charge of the parishes of the neighbouring towns.

The main conflict in the film explodes when the Mayordomos of Yohualichan decide to present a Theatrical representation of an ancient text, part in Nahuatl and part in Spanish, called the "Colloquium of the Adoration of the King". The Catholic priest of Yohualichan accuses the Nahuas of blasphmey since the text is over the discussion between the Archangel Michael and Santo Luzbel, seeing them as equals instead of good & evil. The Nahuas want to perform it in full costume in the town's church, much to the dismay of the everyone else.
