Kino and Juana live in a small fishing village. Their life is hard and their home is humble. Neighbors are close and attentive. Although they live in poverty, there is a sense of contentment. Many of the men dive for pearls and bring them to town. The pearl speculators always give them a fraction of what they are really worth but the villagers never complain.
