In this comedy, the question is not whether the hero of the film will come to grief over his ill-considered gallantry, but when. Sofia (Cecelia Toussaint) is the unfaithful girlfriend of Bruno (Rafael Sanchez Navarro), a thoroughly besotted novelist. She has been on a jaunt to Veracruz with an elderly lover. When the old businessman dies while they are making love, Sofia calls Bruno to help her make the whole situation disappear. His somewhat improbable solution is to have the dead man's body embalmed and placed in the trunk of his car. After that, every one of his increasingly outrageous adventures carries the risk of the body being discovered.
