He thinks the letter is a hoax, because he has been retired as a bullfighter for many years and he has not signed any contracts. Then he sees a bullfighting poster with his name on it and he realizes that the letter is no hoax. However, he needs a bullfighter costume, and renting it will cost him 300 pesetas which he does not have. Both Jacinto and his nephew Pepote (Pablito Calvo) will try to put together that sum in the few hours left before the bullfighting is to take place.
