Poor, hungry peasant Macario longs for just one good meal on the Day of the Dead. After his wife cooks a turkey for him, he meets three apparitions, the Devil, God, and Death. Each ask him to share his turkey, but he refuses all except Death. In return, Death gives him a bottle of water that heals any illness. Soon, Macario is wealthier than the village doctor, which draws the attention of the feared Inquisition.
