A little boy is left at a fountain by his mother. Before she goes, she gives him a book and promises to return within a few hours. She abandons him and goes to France, following the path of so many other Portuguese emigrants. The boy is brought up by a family in the rural village and never hears from his mother again. He grows up in love with a local girl. She reciprocates his feelings. Once they come of age, both decide to emigrate to France, but they each leave on their own.

The book is the only object of value that the boy has ever possessed. It will keep the two of them connected and bring them together again.
