Buenos Aires. On the top floor of a huge public hospital an old Spaniard who has spent half his life in Argentina is about to die. Tough, funny and somewhat tender, the man, a wasted professional killer, decides to run away and happily loaded with morphine sets out on a trip up North to nowhere. On the road he picks up a girl who will become his faithfull squire in a two-thousand kilometer journey full of black humor.
