Carlos and Artur are two friends accustomed to having to stretch their payckecks until the end of each month. One day, to challenge their luck, they play the lottery. The unlikely happens and they become millionaires. Driven by enthusiasm, they begin to live according to their newfound possibilities, experiencing luxuries and eccentricities with which they had only dreamed. The worst is when they realize that with the money, they seem to have acquired a "malapata" ("bad luck') that makes them jump from chance to chance, from misfortune to misfortune...
