|4 latas: Tocho is a rude in bad manners Basque who works in Bilbao's docklands as night watch. Tired of his bored and routine life, a letter from Tombuctu, Mali, forces him to
make a radical change: leaving his job, Tocho travels France for meeting Jean Pierre, a lifelong friend, estranged of their youth days. There Tocho tells Jean Pierre that Joseba,
their other lifelong friend with who they three traveled from Spain to Tombuctu years ago to sell race cars and who he established there in Mali ten years ago, is dying.
