This drama follows in the footsteps the preceding films Los Marginados and El Milusos by director Roberto G. Rivera and once again takes up the story of an impoverished farming family who goes to the city in the hopes of finding a better life. After Serafin (Roberto Guzman) and his family arrive in Mexico City, their lives slide downhill. Unable to read or write, untrained in any skills, no one in the family is prepared for a real job. Drugs and corruption lead to tragedy, and the family returns to the countryside. To their surprise, the farmers have formed a cooperative and nothing in the farming community is the same.
