Storyboard Description

Mama wakes Esperanza from a bad dream and tells her that the house is on fire. Everyone runs to escape the burning house. Tío Luis comes and says he's sorry for this "bad luck." He then takes this time to yet again ask Mama to marry him. If she agrees to marry him, he'll build a bigger, better house, and replant all the grape vines. Otherwise, she can keep living in the servants' quarters... provided nothing else bad happens. Mama says she'll think about it, but Esperanza is ma and screams, "I hate you!" to Tío Luis.
