Beginning in the late 80's, Mexico started experiencing some rapid economic ups and downs (mostly downs). This melodrama explores what one of the downturns does to Miguel (Rafael Sanchez Navarro), a young man working in an architectural firm, when he loses his job. Completely lacking in street smarts, when he finally attempts to bribe his way into a taxi driving job, he loses the last money he has. Shamed by the notion that he might be supported by his wife (Alma Delfina), who still has her job, he persuades her to accompany him as he undertakes his new "job" of robbing grocery stores. Needless to say, this does not work out well.
