    • Synopsis
    • Manolo, a miner by family tradition, pensioner at 50, is addicted to gambling and other dangerous, expensive habits. Long since divorced, he has a smouldering love affair with his neighbor Carmen, wife of policeman, Paco. The relationship with his mother is not much closer, whom he mercilessly plunders all the time. The only person Manolo really loves, although he rarely sees him, is his teenage son Álvaro, who lives with his mother, Manolo´s ex wife, Cova. Cova and Manolo maintain an amicable relationship for the sake of their son.
      Always on the brink of the abyss, everything suggests things could get even worse for him when Paco takes an ‘interest’ in him. But never mind, Manolo is convinced things will change for the better if he is able to enter tonight´s poker game.
      Of course he loses. He does not mind some broken bones, but a veiled threat to his son makes him to accept an assignment by Dani, the owner of the club where he usually gambles. Although not entirely happy in sorting things out for the señorito brother of his creditor, the unrepentant happy-go-lucky Manolo really believes that this time, at last, good luck is waiting for him.
