A lyrical story of bittersweet memories and the enduring power of love, this is the tale of an old man reciting the same story of Lucia Luna he has told hundreds of times to a young boy. The boy can now correct the old man's errors, omissions, and embellishments in the story of how this once beautiful girl became a bitter old woman, destroyed by the jealousy and superstition of her village.
