“What is life?” Gonzalo asks himself while he practices Calderon de la Barca’s famous monologue for his first leading role on a stage. His roommates and childhood friends Nicolás and Germán have more specific matters to be nervous about. German´s ex wants to keep his beloved goldfish Fidel in their division of assets; Nicolás, the womanizing musician –whose family owns their apartment–, is getting ready for the visit of three beautiful girls, hoping to spend an unforgettable night. And it certainly ends up being just that: not only for the right reasons (all the alcohol, the dancing, and the spicy games of a Mexican-themed party), but also for some bad news over the phone, and, finally, a betrayal.
