Based on real situations and characters, the film tells the day-to-day life of Moha, Valero and Pep, workers in a small plumbing and electrical business on the outskirts of Barcelona. For a week, Moha, the youngest, will have to prove that he is ready to replace Pep, who is about to retire. However, Valero considers that Moha ‘is not the right profile’ and doubts that clients will welcome a Moroccan worker in their homes.
