Raphael is a dumpsite boy who sorts through and collects trash to help him survive. One day he finds a bag with 1100 pesos, a wallet, a key, a map, an ID for the man the bag belonged to, and two pictures of his daughters.
Raphael gets threatened and hurt by the police after they invade his home and feel as though he has the missing bag and is lying to them. He gets brutally beaten by the police but never tells them the truth.
Gardo and Olivia went to the prison to see Gabriel Olodriz. He told them stories about his son and gave them clues to help set them on their way to figuring out the mystery. Gabriel told them where to find a bible with a code that will solve the mystery.
The boys go to the Chinese restaurant where the man with the bible waits for them. Gardo goes into the restaurant and takes the book from the man, leaving only 2000 pesos on the table when the man wanted 200,000 pesos. Gardo and the boys then ran for their lives.
The boys crack the code and on the Day Of The Dead, they go to the main graveyard to where José Angelico was buried along with his family. There they find the daughter of this man and figure out that the money is in the grave of his daughter that is suppossed to be dead. They find 6 million dollars and end up going to the islands and living there.
