He is accompanied by Carmen Maura, who plays the prestigious actress Carmen Segarra; Jose Corbacho as the histrionic director of a television network and Carolina Bang, who plays the mother character for the first time.
"The Future is not what it was" starts at a crossroads, Carlos has received an offer of a national television to be the fortune teller star of a successful program. The dilemma is to continue with his imposture, accept the offer and certainly become rich and famous or throw it all away and fight for the dream of your life: Being an actor. When he is about to make a decision, an unexpected turn will precipitate the events. Before leaving Oviedo, something will happen that will change the future of Carlos and Kar-el.
