The story of three losers. Paco (Antonio de la Torre), Ramón (Chema del Barco) and Andrade (Raúl Arévalo), three friends who have been unemployed since the security company they worked for closed forever. On any given day, at 9 in the morning, these three men meet up to execute a plan. However, a series of setbacks will prevent them from leaving home, until little by little they begin to be involved in a series of uncomfortable discussions that will tear down their walls and tear off their masks, forever changing their long friendship. This dramatic comedy is based on the play written by Ignasi Vidal.

The director takes you with humor and intrigue to an ending that leaves you cold, as dramatic as it is unexpected.
