  • Year of production:1993

Benito González has two dreams in life: to marry the woman he loves and to build a giant skyscraper. When he finds out that his girl has been sleeping with his best friend, he dedicates his attention to the latter goal. Getting his project off the ground isn't that easy, not even with the help of his new girlfriend (who happens to be a banker). Benito is left with one option: to marry for money. Easy access to cash gives Benito the lifestyle he has always wanted but his "philosophy of twos" (he has two balls, therefore he can have two girls, two cars etc...) will soon lead him to his downfall.
