  • When a successful construction mogul, Germán Noble, realises that his adult children are spoiled beyond belief, he stages a fake company bankruptcy and seizes of all their assets tricking them into believing that they have become fugitives of the law.

    Germán moves them all into their grandfather's dilapidated home in a poor neighbourhood. There they have no choice but to do something that none of them has ever had to do before – work.

    The Noble Family is Mexico’s biggest ever box-office success!

    “The performances are genuine and the narrative beats land solidly for a perfectly enjoyable feel-good dramedy.” – Los Angeles Times
