Villar del Río, a small Spanish town, is preparing to welcome a team of US diplomats to visit its lands. The mayor, the priest and the villagers want to impress the Yankee delegation in order to be able to access some of the economic aid from the Marshall Plan. Everyone dreams of a better future, but what to do to get their dollars? How to let yourself be "invaded" by the Americans?

Absolute classic comedy and one of the great titles of its director Berlanga. The film was awarded as Best Comedy and with a Special Mention to the screenplay at the Cannes International Film Festival.
