How far would you go to add excitement to a life you felt was boring and meaningless?
For 73-year-old Jaime the answer takes him by surprise. Accustomed to a lonely life high
up in the mountains on the western coast of Mallorca, his dull routine is shattered one day
when a man parachutes from a plane and lands nearby. The plane crashes; the man lives.
It’s a drug smuggling operation gone very bad. But Stefan, the man from the sky, has
escaped with eight kilos of cocaine in a gym bag. Jaime brings Stefan home and is soon
entangled in Stefan’s attempts to sell the cocaine and start a new life.
As they dodge Parisian drug dealers and corrupt Mallorcan police, Jaime’s search for
excitement and Stefan’s resolve to find stability lead them both down dangerous paths.
