Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Gonzalo (Arturo Fernández) is a local "playboy" type who has landed in jail and is forced to talk one of the inmates, Gines (Francisco Rabal) into protecting him against the rowdier low-lifes in the prison. Gonzalo promises that when he is on the outside in a few months, he will repay Gines for the protection he needs now. Little does he know that the payment will involve hiring Gines as his gardener -- a gardener who would rather run Gonzalo's business ventures than pull weeds. It is the conflict between the meddling, tough-guy prisoner and the sophisticated Gonzalo that causes the most unexpected results in this comedy about the immiscibility of oil and water.
