The first story, "Octavio and Susana", stars Gael García Bernal and Vanessa Bauche as the title characters. Susana is Octavio's sister in law, but Octavio is in love with her and resents the way her husband/his brother, Ramiro, treats her. Enticing her to flee with him to start a new life, Octavio enters his dog in the dogfighting circuit where it quickly becomes a champion, scoring him big bucks with which to do it.

'''''Amores Perros''''' is a 2000 Mexican drama film directed by Creator/AlejandroGonzalezInarritu. It is both his directorial debut and the first in his "trilogy of death", followed by ''Film/TwentyOneGrams'' and ''Film/{{Babel}}''. It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. The title translates in English as roughly "''Love's a Bitch''", though WordOfGod states that this is not what the title is supposed to mean. It is sometimes referred to as "the Mexican ''Film/PulpFiction''", although if your're expecting the film to be in any way similiar to that film except in terms of structure, your're out of luck.

The film was somewhat controversial for its numerous realistic scenes of [[BeastlyBloodsports violence against dogs]]. Supposedly, this violence is a metaphor for the violence humans inflict on each other.

The third and final story, "El Chivo y Maru", stars Emilio Echevarría and Lourdes Echevarría. El Chivo (The Goat) appears on the surface to be a homeless man who cares for stray dogs. In reality, he is a [[ProfessionalKiller hitman]] who got involved with a guerrilla movement and thus abandoned his daughter, Maru, many years ago. He and his wife agreed to tell said daughter that he was dead. El Chivo is hired by a man to kill his business partner, but as he is about to do it, he is interrupted by the car crash. He then learns that the target is the client's half-brother, and decides to throw a spanner into the gears...
