A put-upon monastery cook becomes a Mexican wrestler to win the heart of a nun.

Jack Black is Nacho, a man working as a cook at a Mexican monastery he'd been raised in as a young orphan. Upset with his thankless existence while pining for the affections of newly-minted nun Sister Encarnacion, Nacho trains in secret to compete as a Luchador wrestler, hoping to gain respect and love while using an upcoming Luchador tournament's 200-peso prize for the benefit of the monastery's orphans.
