HE PLAYS THE MUSIC, WE DANCE

Delinquent brothers with an air of gangsters dedicate their lives to committing medium-sized robberies throughout their neighborhood.

Delinquent brothers with an air of gangsters dedicate their lives to committing medium-sized robberies throughout their neighborhood. Fantasizing about being protagonists in popular gangster movies they attempt to intimidate their neighbors, often with little success.

The brothers are about to receive a tip that will take them to Galicia in search of their most succulent loot to date: a large shipment of luxurious French relics. What they do not expect is to end up mistakenly taking a shipment of jugs and all the consequences that this action will lead to.

"Both the characters and the story that is told are products of the imagination."
