Jaime, his wife Marie, and their widowed daughter-in-law Lupe live a placid life in the country, near the chicken farm where Jaime has worked for years. Then Maria dies unexpectedly, and in short order, Jaime has lost his wife, his job, and his home. He and Lupe go to San Antonio, to stay with his oldest son, Luis. But Luis is also out of work, and has enough trouble. Next, they go to daughter Alice, who is married to a wealthy, sympathetic gringo, but her campesino dad mortifies her. Jaime's gray hair and potbelly make it hard for him to find work, so he ends up taking odd jobs mowing lawns. Friendly butcher Victor embarks on a slow courtship with the mournful Lupe, who is reluctant to abandon Jaime. Jaime would like to have Lupe stay on to look after him but he refuses to put himself first, realizing that he must say goodbye to his daughter-in-law so she can start her own life again.
