Before getting married to provide for their future Alex and Virginia have spent all their savings on the option of a flat in a building under construction, but the developers have taken too many short cuts and building is stopped. To get their refund for breach of contract from the speculators the couple seek compensation through the law courts and Alex is slowly driven to extremes. This is not the first time that Cinema deals with the lodging crisis during a Spanish economic crisis (see for instance Esta pareja feliz 1951, El inquilino 1956, La vida por delante 1958, El pisito 1959, Hay que educar a papa 1972, Venta por pisos 1972,
