Year 1924 in Spain governs the dictatorship of General Primo de Rivera who is in the peak of its short existence presumes to impose law and order. This state of peace would break violently with a crime that has become part of the black history of Spain, the Crime Express Andalusia.

With this event the splendid director Rovira Beleta, created an extraordinary noir film planning supported by a splendid and great art direction that transports us to Madrid first half of the twentieth. It is in this Madrid with "Corralas" , "Rastro", Street boiling, social differences and trains depart and arrive where Rovira Beleta , with the cadence of a locomotive that accelerates ramp up to a frantic pace, we delights in just eighty minutes with the story of a heist intended to tragedy. This is indicated by the pigeons taking flight in one of the first sequences of the film, common occurrences in the language of film director of "Los Tarantos" 1963. It is true that the script in this film has some major changes, but we are certainly likely at one of the films most estimable robberies yet, most forgotten in the history of Spanish cinema.
