A compilation of four stories by the author Francisco Rojas González. In The Cows, the first of these segments, a young Mexican woman is forced to take a job as a wet nurse in order to support her husband and child. In a later segment, Our Lady, an American anthropologist conducts her research during several months in a remote Mexican village, leading to a change in her perceptions of both herself and her indigenous subjects. In the segment The One Eyed Boy, a young man, blind in one eye is mercilessly tormented by the village children. He finds happiness only when he finally becomes completely blind. The final story, The Filly, tells the tale of an archeologist who obsessed with a local villager's daughter, offers to buy the girl from her father. The father agrees, but then reciprocates, offering twice as much for the archeologist's wife. Director Benito Alazraki relied on a cast of primarily non professional indigenous actors to tell these four tales of rural Mexico. The stories reflect the insulated and impoverished social conditions that existed in the indigenous communities of Mexico when the film was made
