One day, when everyone is celebrating an anniversary meal, a big problem arises: Who will be Doña Cora's heir? And who's going to take care of her by taking her home? When the controversy was already beginning, they receive the news that the old woman has tried to commit suicide by throwing herself to the rail road tracks. Everyone discusses the possible burial of Doña Cora and old quarrels are brought to light that turn into comic situations.
