El padre Manolo es un cura bastante inusual. A su vocación religiosa une una vocación artística que expresa mediante los trucos de magia y la canción española. Mientras viaja en un autocar por las cercanías de Segovia, es testigo de la muerte por accidente de tráfico de un hombre, accidente que en realidad ha sido intencionado. Desde un primer momento, el padre Manolo sospecha que efectivamente dicho accidente ha sido provocado por alguien del entorno familiar de la víctima (la familia Espinosa) para así cobrar la sustanciosa herencia, y, de este modo, se embarca por su cuenta y riesgo en una investigación privada...
