Rolo Santos was the bodyguard of the most feared gangster in Cuba in the first half of the twentieth century. Now he is an elderly person who observes passively the triumph of the Cuban Revolution. His former boss, who had to flee, calls him for a new mission: guarding the gold buried in his mansion during his absence. Accompanied by two assistants, they hatch a plan to seize the gold. They must enter the mansion, neutralize the maid and go with the cargo to a safer place.
