Juan and Carmen are a humble marriage from Madrid. She takes care of domestic chores and he works as an electrician in a film studio. Their dreams of wellness come true when the two win a contest sponsored by a soap brand. It is the choice of “the happy couple”: for 24 hours the selected couple receives all kinds of invitations and gifts. But, precisely on the same day, Juan must solve two serious problems that Carmen does not know about.
