Plot summary

What is Cry Macho movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Cry Macho" movie plot summary.

By 1979, Texan rodeo star Mike Milo (Clint Eastwood) has retired due to a severe back injury. The following year, his former boss Howard Polk (Dwight Yoakam) hires him to travel to Mexico City and bring back Howard's 13-year-old son, Rafo (Eduardo Minett). He agrees and upon entering Mexico, he meets his mother Leta (Fernanda Urrejola), who tells him that Rafo has turned to a life of crime, participating in cockfights with a rooster named Macho. Soon after, Mike finds Rafo participating in a cockfight that is interrupted by a police raid. After the police depart, Mike tells Rafo that his father wants to see him. Intrigued with the possibility of seeing his father's ranch, Rafo agrees to go with Mike back to Texas and leaves to pack his stuff.
A drunk Leta tells Mike that she wants her son to stay in Mexico and threatens him. After Mike leaves, Leta orders several of her henchmen to follow him. Driving back to Texas alone, Mike discovers that Rafo has snuck onto his truck. When Rafo steals his wallet and shares his desire to spend time with his father, Mike agrees to drive him to the border. During the drive there, the pair shares stories about their lives, including how Leta's henchmen used to abuse Rafo, and discuss the meaning of being "macho."
At a restaurant, Mike phones Howard and tells him that he has found Rafo. Outside of the restaurant, one of Leta's henchmen, Aurelio (Horacio Garcia Rojas), tries to forcefully take Rafo and lies to the locals that Mike has kidnapped him. Rafo tells the locals that this is not true and they beat up Aurelio. After Mike and Rafo leave, the pair have their truck stolen by thieves. However, they soon find an abandoned car to use. At a cafe, the pair meets Marta (Natalia Traven), who agrees to let them stay for the night after they notice that several police officers are searching for them. The following day, Mike learns that Rafo has become friends with Marta after telling her the truth.
