- When the mayor of San Pedro de los Saguaros, is lynched by a group of indigenous people, the old junkyard operator Juan Vargas is named the Temporary Municipal President. This makes him believe that his dream of power is going to come true. When confronted with the problems of the place, he decides to resign. However, his boss obliges him to stay and gives him the constitution as an aid and a gun. He soon discovers the delights of power, applying the law along the way and provoking reactions that get out of control.
