Juan Gutiérrez, 44, an electrician, has been unemployed for a long time. He decides to leave his family to go find work in Madrid, believing that in the big city the opportunities will be greater. Once there, he discovers that things are not as he believed. He is an electrician. He doesn't want to clean windshields at stoplights or clean cabarets at dawn. He wants to work as an electrician. Occasionally she meets Andy, a Caribbean mulatto who boasts bulletproof optimism. With his sharp wit, he manages as best he can, trying not to be found by the immigration authorities. Despite the distances, "Gallego" and "Sudaca" become friends.
