Trumpocalypse now! Der wirre Traum des 45. Präsidenten der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika ist wahr geworden: „Sein“ Land frei von Mexikanern. Doch des einen Traum ist der anderen Alptraum. Hilfe erhalten die verzweifelten Einwanderer allerdings von ganz unerwarteter Seite. Auf subversiv-anarchistische Weise nimmt der Film typische Hollywood Action-Blockbuster aber auch Mexikaner-Stereotypen auf die Schippe.

 

Trumpocalypse now! The confused dream of the 45th President of the United States of America became true: “his” country free of Mexicans. But the dream of him is the nightmare of the others. However, the desperate immigrants receive help from an unexpected side. In a subversive-anarchistic way, the film takes typical Hollywood action blockbusters but also Mexican stereotypes on the shoestring.
