After the death of Franco, the Marquis of Leguineche returns to Madrid from thirty years of voluntary exile in his countryside farm. From his palace he intends to approach the King to resume the court life of yesteryear and a series of jests and unscrupulous people will start to hang around waiting for an opportunity to make some profit. Berlanga, with his usual sharp wit, revises Spanish life from the standpoint of the Spanish high society's opportunism, which, with the end of the Franco period have to find new ways to keep their privileges.
