Miguel, a peasant, journeys to Pueblo Santa Cruz for food, redemption, and a couple of cervezas at the Cantina de los Remedios. While at the Cantina, he becomes fascinated by an old guitar, La llorona, hanging upon the wall. The Cantina's owner, Pedrito, tells him of its origins, and the man who played it -- Rodrigo, perhaps the greatest singer-songwriter to have hailed from Pueblo Santa Cruz, but who mysteriously disappeared following a fateful love affair, leaving La llorona behind.
