  • I wants you to stay and learn farming.
  • I just want you to be safe!
  • We must wait. We must pray.
  • Padre, I feel lost. I don't know what the Lord requires of us in these hard times...
  • Mate and Leonardo keep moving around. Minerva and Manolo have more than one baby. Dede and Jaimito are in a bankruptcy run. Mama has built a new cottage on the main road. Patria wants to name her baby after the Cuban revolutionaries
  • Patria asks a priest to help Nelson get in a seminary in the capital (where the action is). Pedrito wants him to stay with the farm. Nelson doesn't want to (it's not safe for men in the countryside because Trujillo's assassins was rounding them up)
