Synopsis by Mark Deming
The tenants of an apartment building go on a treasure hunt when they discover a fortune has been lurking under their noses in this comedy. When one of the residents of an apartment block in Mexico City passes on, someone sorting through their belongings makes a surprising discovery -- it seems that the holiday figurines of the Three Wise Men that they kept on their mantel once belonged to Emiliano Zapata. And that's not all that's unusual about the figures -- beneath a veneer of plaster, the figures are actually solid gold. Now that it's known that the statuettes are worth a fortune, who will get at them first, and will they be able to hold on to them?
