In a small Spanish town, an impoverished truck driver, in danger of having his vehicle repossessed, becomes involved in an annual Christmas charity drive that opens his eyes to the problems of others. Plácido takes a satirical look at charity from the head—the cold, calculated kind—as compared to charity from the heart. Directed by Luis García Berlanga; presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes.
