This black comedy bills itself as the first Spanish film to discuss AIDS. The story deals with people who contracted the diseases via heterosexual relations, most particularly TV-commercial producer Luis Vasquez who has prepared a special campaign for national AIDS day. While participating in an all-day marathon broadcast, Luis is disturbed to discover that his nose will not quit bleeding. He then remembers an encounter he had with a bullfighter's wife; he also remembers that he heard that the bullfighter may have been bisexual. Following the marathon, a South-American diplomat holds a reception related to AIDS day; but not one of the invited officials come. The only ones in attendance are suffering from the disease. Luis becomes acquainted with the diplomat's daughter and learns that she too is infected. The name of the film comes from a popular brand of Spanish condom.
