Coco is 3D animated feature film produced by Pixar Animation studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures on the occasion of Thanksgiving.

Miguel Revira is 12 year old great grand-son of Coco hails from Revira family. He dreams to be a great musician like Delacruz. Unlikely, the Revira family does not like music and banishes him to persuade his career in music.

On finding a photo Miguel believes that Delacruz is his great great grand father, father of coco.
The story takes a turn when Miguel accidentally visits to the land of dead with his stray pet dog. He is accompanied by Hector, a lost guy who wants to visit his family on the Day of Dead by hook or crook. He cracks a deal with Miguel to take him to Delacruz and Miguel will keep his Photo. There is theory in the movie that if photos and remembrances are not made then dead’s soul will no longer exist in the dead of land.
Miguel discovers his dead family and also comes to know that in fact it was Hector who composed all songs for Delacruz. Hector planned to take voluntary retirement and Delacruz given him poison, also stolen his guitar. So, it was Hector who was in the photo which Miguel discovered earlier.
