A volunteer troop of middle-aged men gather to defend their country from dark shrouded foreign invaders. Hearing the summons from an elderly man, the group quickly mobilizes as they change into their light-colored costumes. Political upheaval and gangland warfare threaten the last remnants of a civilized society out of touch with the rest of the world. A poet, a modern Don Juan and a man who loves violence are just some of the victims brought down by the enemy. A femme fatale captures the Don Juan, and the violent man is shot while watching a television western. This marks the directorial debut of Hugo Santiago.
