Samuel (53) is a professional chess player who lives betting on small games that he knows won. His best friends are Joaquin (65), a consecrated watchmaker who is about to lose the workshop he inherited from his father, and Marcos (72), a Spanish homeopath who is dedicated to finding the formula to win in poker. Life will teach them that it is never too late to risk losing. The three friends have found shelter in the safety of their routines, avoiding facing up to their failures. Different events will affect their everyday lives and they will understand that in life, as in love, it is never too late to risk it all.
