A family of Chilean socialists living in West Germany, refugees from the coup which toppled Salvador Allende, attempt to survive on the few jobs which are open to them. In the story, the father has just been fired from his job because of his politically unreliable, i.e., socialist, background. The son of the family comes to the rescue by taking a job as a stockroom boy. His father strives mightily to get his job back, so that the boy can remain in school. In the meantime, the boy has made friends with a Greek socialist refugee and has found a German girlfriend.
