Rodrigo 'The Bat Man of Mexico', has been saving the amazing bats of his homeland since childhood, when he kept vampires in his bathroom. Now his favourite drink, Tequila, is at stake. The bat that pollinates the plant that this famous liquor comes from is in trouble. Rodrigo decides to track their migration to save them. He braves hurricanes, snakes, Mayan tombs and seas of cockroaches to find and save the bats. This is a rare heart-warming and breathtaking conservation success story.
