A locksmith from a small town buried deep in the province of Buenos Aires, Zapa's (Jorge Roman) quiet existence is thrown into disarray when he is arrested for robbery after being sent on a call by his boss, Polaco (Hugo Anganuzzi). Bailed out by his retired policeman uncle, Ismael (Roberto Posse), and sent to start life anew in Buenos Aires, Zapa is soon on his way to becoming a policeman as well. Settling into his new existence, Zapa soon begins an affair with a teacher as his life continues to spiral into directions he had never anticipated.
