Wino is a dump dweller who drives an ancient and decrepit Oldsmobile. He works with Atómiko to connect Nayeli and her group up with a coyote to take them over the border. To Nayeli's surprise, Wino loves Tijuana and is an excellent tour guide—though he's also crass and vulgar and honks the car horn in the rhythm of an obscene song. When the coyote fails to get Nayeli successfully across, Wino does her a favor and calls on his uncle to smuggle Nayeli to the US using a drug trafficking tunnel that goes under the US-Mexico border.
