Synopsis

Drama. An elderly colonel lives with his ailing wife in a small town on the Mexican coast. Their only son having died recently, the couple are finding it hard to manage financially. The colonel has been waiting many years for his army pension; his only other hope for another source of money is a fighting cockerel which had belonged to his son. The colonel's wife is insistent that the cockerel be sold, much to the displeasure of her husband's wishes; he in turn is just as stubborn in refusing to acquiesce.
