When Pancho Duque is given a death sentence by his doctor, he wants to pass leadership of the Duque rum distillery to the next generation. His son Frank wants to sell the family sugar fields to an old family rival, Samuels, and take up other areas of business. But Pancho's stepson, Alex Vega, discovers Samuels is up to foul play and expects great payoff from government plans to support ethanol production from sugar, and Pancho selects Alex as his successor. Meanwhile, Alex's youngest son tries out for the baseball all-star team, his daughter starts going to clubs, and his oldest son Jaime tells his father he does not want to go to college. As if that weren't enough, Alex's wife has something to tell him. Written by
