Attracted by the life of a cowboy Calino arrives in the Far West. The cowboys show him how to make and throw a lasso, how to use a gun, how to rope a cow and ride a wild horse. When Calino begins to practice these things it becomes a disaster, and when he tries to rides a horse, it becomes even more so.
