Curro is a salesman who dreams of working in the financial industry. Despite being burdened by debt, he makes a promise he cannot keep: if his nine-year-old son Nico gets straight As in school, Curro will take him on an unforgettable summer vacation. The boy fulfills his part of the bargain; it’s now up to Curro to figure out how to turn this vacation into a truly memorable one given his limited resources in this gag-filled comedy.

Curro es un vendedor que sueña con trabajar en la industria financiera. A pesar de estar endeudado, hace una promesa que no puede cumplir: si Nico, su hijo de nueve años, saca calificaciones de A en todos sus cursos en la escuela, Curro lo premiará con unas vacaciones de verano inolvidables. El niño cumple con su parte del trato; ahora le toca a Curro solucionar cómo convertir estas vacaciones en una experiencia realmente memorable, dado sus
limitados recursos, en esta divertida comedia.
