Federico (Eusebio Poncela) has a rather unique talent: he can steal the luck of others. For Samuel Berg (Max von Sydow), who runs a lavish casino, that makes him a prized employee. But when Samuel turns the tables and steals Federico's luck, it sets the two at war. Samuel is one of the luckiest people in the world; to get at him, Federico has to find someone even luckier. He finds a candidate in Tomas (Leonardo Sbaraglia), a plane crash survivor who, if he's lucky, might just even the odds.
