Jacob Kaplan built a quiet life with his wife of 50 years after fleeing Nazi Europe for Uruguay during World War II. Now 76, he begins to question his worth and general usefulness. After learning of a mysterious German restaurant owner on a nearby beach, he becomes convinced that he's found a Nazi and teams up with a former policeman, Wilson Contreras, to kidnap the German and bring him to justice.

Enojado por su vejez y aburrido de su monótona vida, Jacobo Kaplan es invadido por la angustia del olvido. Un parador playero le dará una última e inesperada oportunidad de lanzar su vida a una aventura épica y extraordinaria: el dueño, un solitario y veterano alemán, despierta sus sospechas de pueda ser un fugitivo Nazi. Clandestinamente, Kaplan recluta la ayuda de un más leal que honesto ex policía: Wilson Contreras. Juntos se lanzan a desenmascarar y a llevar al alemán a la justicia en una alocada y quijotesca investigación.
