without wanting...

...or thinking about it

is a torment which no one...

...can feel unless

they experienced it themselves".

"Emigrating is death".

How long will you keep

tormenting me?

I'm reading for you, Echeverria.

You didn't listen, did you?

I mean it.

Let's leave the books.

Camila, Camilita!

Beautiful princess,

will you marry me?

Come over, come over...


You won't be able

to recognize him,

he's just arrived!

I bet I can!

He's not Father Felix.

Eduardo isn't either.

Please, speak.

Say something.

- Happy birthday, Camila.

- I know who it is.

It's the province Father.

Supper's ready!

Camila, let's cut the cake!

There's my father.

Father, I want you to meet

my friend from Tucumn.

- Father Ladislao Gutierrez.

- They told me about you.

- Father Ganon.

- Nice to meet you.

My uncle the governor has told me

to transmit his greetings.

Excuse me.

Your uncle is the governor

of Tucumn?

That's right, sir.

Remember the doors to this house

will always be open for you.

Father Gutierrez,

it's not a small offer.

With Mr. O'Gorman you can find

the best of Buenos Aires.

And I'm grateful, sir.

You'll have to take care

of the details.

- I don't understand, Father.

- You have forgotten your token.

I always carry an extra one

for this emergencies.

The governor is a bit too careful

about this matter.

Father Ganon likes to exaggerate.

Do you think I exaggerate?

- Excuse me.

- Here, give some to Clara.

How nice, great recipe!

- Tomorrow if you like.

- Sure.

Do you want a drink?

"My dear madam".

"I hear how they prepare

the weapons outside...

which they'll shoot

against this heart,

which I want you to know

will be with you...

until their last beat".

No, no, not that one.

That one's for me.
