Juan is a farmer who moves to the city in search for new job opportunities. When he arrives, he is faced with an atmosphere of exploitation in the construction industry. In this context, where survival is a tough job, he gets involved in murky affairs as a result of some jewellery he is asked to take care of. Using the resources of genre films, El andamio is an original, fierce, and pessimistic portraiture of Spain in the 1950s.
