"Lourdes gives birth to a girl, Diana. Santos has never shown up at the hospital. he is not answering the house phone. He has gone to a bar to get drunk. Alone, Lourdes leaves the hospital wearing nothing than a blue paper robe."
"I will not put up with this, Lourdes tells herself. The arguing gets worse."
"Lourdes is let go form the fish-packing plant after she is injured in the job. Money is tight. Santos drinks more and more. He doesn't help with the baby. lately, when he drinks, he gets jealous and violent"
"I want to be with you" Enrique says "come home it may only be beans but you will always have food here." Lourdes mother tells Lourdes.
