Always dressed in black, serious, hidden behind big dark glasses and the smoke of an eternal cigarette, he left an important mark on millions of people of several generations who still explain and laugh his jokes. From the eighties till the mid-nineties, was present in all Spanish homes through the small screen. He toured throughout the country and part of Latin America, won gold discs, filled theaters, stadiums, nightclubs, he was demanded everywhere ... However, professional success hid what was happening far from the spotlight.
Actually Eugenio was a character with many facets. He was a jeweler, singer, musician, businessman, painter, actor and even an amateur of esotericism. His life was marked by the sudden death of his first wife, Conchita Alcaide, who elevated him to the stardom. Her death was the turning point that marked Eugenio’s life; a sadness took hold of him and he fell into a series of darkness and depressions.
Two decades after his death, the documentary Eugenio discovers, for the first time, through the unpublished archive of the family, the lights and shadows of that mythical character.
