It's nine in the morning on a hot summer day in the Madrid neighborhood of Usera. Paco, Ramón and Andrade, three friends who have been unemployed since the company where they worked closed, have agreed to execute a plan. When they finally meet, a setback prevents them from leaving the house: the car they needed to get around is broken down. As they search for another way to reach their destination, they are involved in a series of awkward discussions that will slowly tear down their walls and tear off their masks.
