A schoolteacher (Frank Ramirez) and a butcher (Humberto Dorado) who were once best friends prepare for a duel to the death in this comedy of manners. The reason for their duel is never given, but soon the upcoming event becomes the talk of the town. Even the mayor and the police chief place bets on the event. Both men make final preparations by paying their debts, saying goodbye to loved onces, and ordering coffins. Latin machismo, bureaucracy, and religion are just some of the sacred cows that are gored by the lampooning lance that shows no mercy with satirical stabs.
