The patient man of the title is José (Antonio de la Torre), a patron of a low-rent Madrid cafe who take an interest in one of its waitresses, Ana (Ruth Díaz). But his intent is not simply romantic — Ana’s husband is a getaway car driver whose prison sentence for a botched jewelry store robbery is almost up.
