Raul discovers Chico's belongings, which had been stored in the van where he lived. Ed finds out when he overhears a guitar playing. In anger, Ed -- still having trouble coming to terms with Chico's death months earlier -- shoos Raul from the van and smashes the guitar in anger. Raul takes this as a cue that Ed hates him and he runs away.
Ed, deeply regretting his words that led Raul to run away, forms a search party to search for the young lad. Everyone later suspects Raul may have returned to Tijuana, Mexico, to search for his family. Acting on the tip, Ed eventually finds Raul in an old church, leading to a reunion. Ed apologizes and explains that Chico had died (though not how), and Raul agrees to go home.
