In this story from playwright Jose Ignacio Cabrujas, Buey (Carlos Munoz) is a family patriarch whose lustful past weighs heavily on his conscience in this surrealistic comedy drama. He sets out to legitimize the various children he has sired over the years. Buey has a dream about a bishop acting as a swine shepherd and calls in a witch to interpret the dream. She declares it an omen of impending wealth, but tells Buey that the house must be purified with a ritualistic cleansing.
