A farm divided into two parts unleashes a fight to the death between Carlos and Humberto, two peasant brothers who dispute to have the greatest amount of land in the inheritance that their father left them.


This dispute leads the two families to break off relations, although Luis Carlos and Beto, cousins, sons of Carlos and Humberto continue to meet secretly, thus devising a way to save their relationship and, incidentally, the lives of their parents.
