This film tells the story of a man who, following signs of good luck, buys a lottery ticket on the very day when he is run over by a car. When he is discharged from hospital, he finds out that his ticket –a winning number, indeed– is gone. In his desperate search for the lost ticket, he even tries to commit suicide. A masterpiece of amateur film containing unique images of Spain in the 1950s.
