Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this Argentine comedy-drama, a lonely, aging and never-married woman lives all alone in her late father's musty mansion. One day she calls a plumber to fix a toilet. He is a bungler and nearly destroys her home, all the while making rather vulgar passes at her. She finds a certain charm in the braggadocio boob, and so when he tells her that he is going to enter a bicycle race, she offers to support his training. She then buys him a bike and lets him work out in her house. Things are well until a low-life buddy suggests that he sleep with the judge's wife to ensure a win. The young man tries, but simply cannot go through with the seduction. Unfortunately, the spinster, who returns home and finds them, doesn't know this and jealously gives him the boot. He then suffers more humiliation when he loses the race and slowly wobbles into the finish line. Fortunately, the forgiving woman is there to cheer him on.
