In this surreal, minimalist fairy tale for adults, a leather-working tailor (Luis Flete) has traveled to the warehouse of a very sinister and macho man (Feodor Atkine) who seemingly owns a good part of the town he lives in, to purchase some more leather for his business. The warehouse owner and the tailor both have eyes on one of the cool, beautiful girls who is a tenant in an apartment house the wearhouse owner lives in (as well as owning it). In order to be near the woman, the tailor agrees to an unusual deal with the warehouse owner. He will make a special leather garment designed to make him irresistable to the girl (Iciar Bollain), and in return the owner will give him the use of an apartment in his building. That done, the tailor soon realizes that he has done his work too well, and violence soon results.
