Cantinflas (Mario Moreno) appears in several separate stories in this film, all of which deal with bureaucrats of one sort or another. In the first episode, Cantinflas is a man who earns his living writing letters for illiterate people, an evantelista. In the second, he is a low-level government bureaucrat in situations which free him to criticize abuses. The next episode has him, hat in hand, coming to a bureaucrat for some help, and in yet another episode, he helps a deaf-mute girl.
