Gently surreal comedy directed by Spanish auteur Luis Buñuel. A young bridegroom, Oliverio (Esteban Marquez), is called away on his wedding day to settle matters on behalf of his dying mother. When he arrives at the family home he quickly realises that his brothers have been neglecting their mother's care in favour of plotting how to squander her inheritance. In order to get the will altered to protect her wishes, he embarks upon an eventful two-day bus journey during which he meets many odd characters and is faced with new temptations at every turn.
