Tobias Bolivar (Rafael Maldonado) is an honest, hard-working man who takes pride in his job as a low-level official. He discovers a suitcase that contains over $80,000 in 100 dollar bills. Tobias turns the suitcase into the lost and found, sparking a series of events beyond his control. His irate wife Maria (Lucy Martinez), refuses to sleep with him, and his friends either refer to him as an angel or an idiot. When Tobias is declared "the last honest man in Columbia," his proud boss soaks up the publicity and he is threatened by the crooks who stole the money. The characters are symbolic of the greed of Columbian society.
