Comedy about the early career of comedian Eugenio. Barcelona, late 60s. Eugenio Jofra, a young jeweler, meets Conchita and their crush is instantaneous. Eugenio learns to play the guitar to accompany Conchita, for which he will have to fight against stage fright. This is how he begins the musical career of 'Els dos'. When Conchita has to be away from Barcelona for two weeks, she convinces Eugenio to carry out the performances alone. When he returns, Eugenio has become a phenomenon of the city's underground humor. Little by little, the two of them will build the character: the glasses, the black shirt, the stool, the cigarettes and the tube glass, which will become an unexpected success in a depressed Spain that desperately seeks to laugh with that unique comedian who He starts all his jokes with 'Saben aquell...' ('You know that...').
