Based on real situations and characters, The Odd-Job Men recounts the daily life of Moha, Valero and Pep, workers of a small plumbing company and electricity in the outskirts of Barcelona. For a week Moha, the youngest, will have to show that he’s prepared to replace Pep, who’s retiring. But Valero considers that Moha “isn’t suited to doing the job”, and doubts that clients will accept a Moroccan worker in their homes.
