This drama, set in a Buenos Aires hotel, centers upon a fascist who goes into hiding after his organization's activities are banned by the government. Within the hotel he finds a group of Spanish exiles and actors. He begins eavesdropping after he overhears them planning to assassinate a visiting dictator. He doesn't know they are only rehearsing and so immediately runs to the cops with the information. Eventually, the police figure out what happened, but this does not stop them from closing down the performers' theater. When the actors discover that it was the fascist that ratted upon them, they toss him out of the hotel.
