Déficit depicts a day in the life of Cristobal, a twenty-odd year old upper-class snob who studies economics and listens to hip-hop. Cristobal is the son of a corrupt politician. The film focuses on "the upper-crust" of Mexican society and its relationship with other social classes. A party is just an excuse to tell a tale about the loss of innocence and about the gradual deterioration of a political system in Mexico
Ten different voices join together to create a contemporary vision of the Revolution in Mexico. There is not only one interpretation presented of this historic event, but rather a wide range of views about the concept of revolution — its social significance as well as its more intimate, personal meaning. These stories try to offer a plural perspective through varied aesthetic perceptions that enrich our collective imagination.
