Carmen, Catholic, apostolic and from Malaga, is going to become the president of her brotherhood. But she gets a big disappointment when the group chooses Ignacio, her greatest rival. Far from accepting it, she gets into a mess that seems to have no end. Pills, French toast, his daughter, granddaughter and neighbour. She has half the town at home, the other half in the street and everyone needs her. But she just wants things to change and she’s going to make sure they do.
