PlotEdit

Two small-time con men make a living of swindling people. They have a relatively happy life despite some "visits" to Carabanchel Prison. However, one of them, Virgilio, falls in love with the sister of his partner. Since she is not happy about their style of living, they decide to become honest people. Having failed in other jobs, open their own travel agency, which turns out to be a success after some comical incidents.

CriticEdit

Spanish critic Carlos Aguilar in his Guía del cine español considers this film "in his own way, a classic".[1]
