A lost world

The black and white Spain, the old subway, the 50s-60s in Madrid is the world of "Atraco a las tres" (Rubbery at 3 o'clock). Galindo (Lopez-Vazquez) has a lot of rich life dreams. The old, tender bank director is going out, coming a new burocratic and repressive director Galindo and the other bank guys hate. Now is born the idea of rubbery... It's an open door, a door towards blonde and tall young women, Mercedes cars and Coast houses. The dreams of so time ago, Galindo's dreams... But the real world in black and white is stronger.
