Near the end of the Franco dictatorship in 1974, impoverished yet optimistic salesman Lozano (Antonio Resines) travels the Spanish coast in a Citroen with his rebellious teenage son Felipe (Fernando Ramallo), a fan of Patty Hearst. After Lozano makes love to attractive vocalist wannabe Estrella (Miriam Diaz Aroca), both father and son make moves on pleasant Paquita (Maribel Verdu), a local villager. They finally settle down at an American Army base where Lozano goes to work selling imported cars and Felipe finds happiness with black-girl Miranda (Tania Adam). Shown at the 1997 Vallodolid Film Festival.
