A peasant woman worries when her husband does not return from a livestock sale. With her young son, she consults a fortune teller and the local priest. Selling her home, they set out to discover why her husband has mysteriously disappeared. She questions two men who were with her husband the last time anyone had seen him alive. They deny ever seeing her husband on that day, which she knows is not true. She finds the family dog who leads her to the remains of her husband and his equally unfortunate horse. Inviting the suspected murderers to the burial dinner, the determined woman is able to implicate the killers and ultimately find justice.
