Jorge (Francisco Ruiz) is a young orphan boy sent to live with his grandmother (Ana Marie Noe). His only memory of his parents comes from two old photos he has saved. He buries the pictures in two flower pots and takes great care of them. Two young children, a boy and a girl, are soon seen playing in the garden and the hallways of the house, and Jorge joins his new friends. A feeble-minded aunt and a lecherous servant girl are his only other companions, so Jorge delights in playing with the two newcomers. He soon realizes that the two children are his parents and they are the same age as he is in this symbolic fantasy. Jorge must decide if his visions are real or only a wishful dream.
