    • Synopsis
    • “El Rubio” stopped his delinquent career years ago, but his wife's serious illness makes him rethink things when Junior, a local cocaine dealer, proposes to dock the front man of his bosses in Gran Canaria.
      To organize the assault, it will not be difficult to seduce Tito “El Palmera”, a long-term unemployed ex hitman whose dream is to open a bar, and Cora, a luxury prostitute who knows she's close to the time when her charms disappear.
      The pekinese strategy is to be fierce and to take advantage of any foil of the adversary to attack and to flee. That will be what the protagonists of this
      movie do when they discover that they have trodden the tail of a tiger and are immersed in a frantic persecution in which they will leave a bloody trail.
      Forty-five-year-olds, scandals, narcos, corrupt cops, and money launderers populate this high-voltage noir film, a hard choral story about losers, where
      the important thing is not to know who the killer is.
