Paco is a hired thug who’s hit hard times, a guy with dandruff and debts. One of these debts is owed to Don Rodrigo, the Vito Corleone of the provincial city where they live, who’s so fed-up with waiting to be paid that he makes Paco teach the profession to his nephew Alex, an adolescent who looks like an idiot and has no idea about anything whatsoever.
One of Alex’s gaffes is to include Tatiana in the group. She’s a hostess in a bar and seems to be in need of help. So they’re all in on this and with Paco on the verge of doing himself in thinking about the gang he’s got, when luck seems to be coming their way; they have a job offer. This job involves kidnapping a sweet, harmless butcher, Aramís, and asking a juicy ransom for her which would allow Paco to pay off his debts and get rid of his new partners.
They were supposed to be the bad guys.
