Samuel, Joaquin and Marcos, are three old friends living their lives in downtown Bogota. They spend their days between Lasker - the legendary chess club, The Caribbean Casino, and La Normanda - a traditional coffee shop. Samuel, 53, is a professional chess player that lives of betting on small matches he knows he will win. His best friend is Joaquin, 65, an accomplished watch-maker who's about to loose the workshop he inherited from his father. And then there's Marcos, 72, a Spanish homeopath devoted to finding a formula to win poker matches. These three men have found shelter in the safety of their routines, avoiding to facing up to their failures. But a time comes when they are confronted by reality and causes them to stagger.
