Leandro, an unemployed construction worker, and his friend Tocho try to rob a tobacconist in the Madrid neighborhood of Vallecas, but Justa, the owner, stops them. The neighbors outside, shout, threaten and warn the police and the attackers have no choice but to barricade the door of the shop. Meanwhile, inside the tobacconist, the confrontation between the two friends and their "hostage", the owner and his niece, is relaxing and an emerging sympathy arises between them.
