Paul was not intended to cheat on his wife by pretending to be Victoria's husband. However, when Paul decided to come back to his home and left Victoria, he found his wife cheating on him.

Of Victoria's life.

Now that you are a part

of all this, a part of us...

...it is the root of your life.

You are an orphan no longer.

So you will stay with your family...

...while we harvest the fruit.

It's a special time.

It's a time of magic!

I really can't.

I have commitments.

What about the commitments

to your family?

- What can be more important than that?

- I would like to, really.

But I can't.

He said you would not stay.

- Who did?

- Alberto.

He said, "The first chance

that gringo gets...

...he will leave her."

- His exact words.

- I'm not leaving her...

No, I understand.

It's just my poor granddaughter.

He will whip her with it.

She'll be the one to pay

for your "commitments."

Such a pity.

Such a sweet girl.

- It's just the difference of a day.

- Our most important day.

The day that makes

or breaks our fortunes.

That's what he will throw up to her.

For the rest of her life!

I know...

...my son.

Don Pedro.

You're right.

It's only one day. I'll stay.


May I?

It's a good thing. You have

no more chocolates to sell anyway.

Come on.

- I thought you were leaving.

- It's better for you if I stay.

- At least until the harvest.

- Don't you have chocolates to sell?

Family comes first.

Hey, everybody. I'm home!

Hiya, sis!

Hi, Jose.

Hi, Grandpa.

Hi, Grandma.

My favorite chili's ready?

- Hi, Mom.

- At last!

Hi, Pop. Sorry I'm late.

This is my husband, Paul Sutton.

Paul, my brother.

You got hitched?

That's swell!

Victoria Sutton. I like that.

- Welcome to the family. I'm Pete.

- Thanks.

Who is "Pete"?

- Pa, come on.

- I don't know any Pete.

I pay a fortune

to Stanford University...

...for a Pedro Alberto

Aragon Limantour.

Maybe I'm paying for the wrong person,

and I should stop the check.

- Glad to meet you, Pedro.

- Can we begin now?

Make sure he knows what to do.

We don't want him cutting himself

and getting blood on the grapes.

It'll ruin the taste of the wine.

Aren't you happy you stayed?

Come on!

- How do they feel?

- They're a little big.

Like family, you must live in clothes

for a while before they fit.

- But you are doing great.

- Not everyone would agree.

It's not easy being in charge.

It wasn't for me.

It's not easy for him.

Every man must find his own way.

But I have faith in my son.

And I have faith in you.

But your fly is open.

My wife's family, the Aztecs...

...believe that you must

have permission...

...of the four winds to harvest

what the earth gives.

Isn't she beautiful?

Come on, you're a married woman now!

What about Pedro?

- He's not married.

- Neither are we.

I want you more than anything.

You can't imagine how I want you.

But I'm not free.

I won't hurt you that way.

I won't.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

- We can lead the market, not chase it.

- Where's my hat?

Raise money through

limited partnerships.

- Hi, Paul.

- Hi, Pedro. Good morning, Mr. Aragon.

- So, what do you think, Pop?

- About what?

Modernizing the operation,

limited partnerships?

- A partner equals trouble.

- You can always borrow from the bank.

Listen, just because you harvested

a few grapes doesn't give you a say.

Stick to your candy and keep

your nose out of our business.

Now, tell me what's going on here.

That you sleep one night on the floor,

the next on the couch?

You'll use any excuse to make him

feel unwelcome, won't you?

There's something wrong here.

This whole thing smells wrong.

A girl comes home with

a husband nobody ever heard of...

...with her suitcase as full

as when she went away.

Like she has no place else to go.
