Director Alex de la Iglesia's look back to Spanish filmmaking of old centres on Carlos (Luis Castro), a young boy on a mission to find the grandfather denied him by his mother. The grandfather, Julian (Sancho Gracia), who was once a stuntman on spaghetti westerns, is now reduced to doing stunt shows for tourists with his old buddies on the same decaying sets. Carlos's appearance restores some pride to Julian, but when Carlos's mother Laura (Carmen Maura) finds out where he is, she decides to finally destroy the last remnants of Julian's past career: the old film sets. The stage is now set for the old cowboy's final showdown.
