It all starts in an overcrowded prison, where Diego is being held on a charge of kidnapping.


Diego’s lawyer, the fastidious Antinucci, secures Diego’s release.


But the lawyer has plans for his client, whose unexpected freedom comes at a price: he must join forces with a brutal psychopath, the Hobo, and hold up an armoured truck.


A hilarious caper ensues, as the robbery swiftly degenerates into mayhem and violence.


While the men appear to be engaged in a perverse competition to see who is the most incompetent, the disparaged women – Ursula Lopez, an amateur criminal with an insatiable appetite, and her rival, Captain Leonilda Lima – reveal themselves to be the true protagonists.


This seemingly classic lowlife crime story has a powerful message: never, ever underestimate the women.
