La biblioteca pública de Evanston estará feliz a presentar una discusión del libro “Rumbo al hermoso norte”. Nayeli, una joven de diecinueve años llena de energía e ideales, se acerca a la edad adulta en un pueblo de México situado a más de 1000 millas de la frontera. Nayeli y sus amigos se pasan el día en empleos de salario mínimo y buscando en Internet videos de estrellas de cine y de sus bandas favoritas, soñando con un mundo más grande que tienen pocas esperanzas de llegar a conocer. Viven en Tres Camarones, un pueblo donde a la gente le gusta que las cosas sigan igual. Pero los cambios se acercan a pasos agigantados. Irma, la tía de Nayeli, acaba de ser elegida la primera presidente municipal del pueblo. Casi todos los hombres del pueblo, incluido el padre de Nayeli, se han ido al norte a buscar trabajo en los Estados Unidos, y recientemente han comenzado a aparecer por el pueblo matones, traficantes de drogas, ansiosos de hacer negocio y venderlas a los surfistas norteamericanos que frecuentan las playas cercanas. Una noche, Nayeli y sus amigos asisten a una proyección de Los siete magníficos, el clásico del cine de John Sturges. En la película, un pueblo agrícola mexicano se ve aterrorizado por unos bandidos hasta que los ancianos de la aldea deciden que el pueblo peleará por lo suyo, y eligen a tres agricultores para que vayan a los Estados Unidos a contratar a siete valientes pistoleros que ayuden a defender al pueblo. Inspirada, Nayeli promete ir en una misión a los Estados Unidos y volver con siete hombres —incluido su padre— para defender a Tres Camarones de los bandidos traficantes. Convence a su leal grupo de amigos de acompañarla en este peligroso viaje, y la búsqueda comienza.
