rated for 0 + years
Welcome, economic crisis! Three young Spaniards have a great business idea and then just make everything worse – in a comedy for which the description »screwball« was invented. Three academics, Pedro, Arturo and Eligio, have all lost their jobs at the university. Frustrated and broke, they develop an idea which Pedro has been working on for years: miracle pills which enable you to work all night long without any side effects. Full of anticipation, the ex-profs throw themselves into the city nightlife seeking buyers for their fabulous stamina drug. But the market is both dangerous and bizarre. And Pedro, Arturo and Eligio are the worst dealers in the world.
