In this big box office hit by Fernando Trueba, he introduces the owner of a disastrous art gallery, Art Dodge, who has known better days. Art falls in love with the beautiful Liz, just after having gotten engaged to her sister, Betty.

In order to conquer Liz without disappointing Betty, a bizarre idea occurs to him. He pretends to have a twin brother with a bohemian past, Bart. Art plays both brothers throughout the film until the very end, when he finally and reluctantly concedes to marry Betty. But, will he be able to play the role of bridegroom and best man simultaneously?
