When he does appear he declares his love and faithfulness, to the approval of Salud and her grandmother. But then her Uncle arrives with the news that Paco will tomorrow marry a rich girl. The reception for the marriage of Paco and Carmela is in progress at Carmela’s home. Salud appears with her grandmother and they observe the party before Paco notices that they are there.

A boy is rude to his mother and is scolded by her. In his room he rages, smashing his toys, the teapot and more. As his anger subsides he drops into the armchair, which promptly comes to life. His homework too comes to life, taking the shape of an old man and a chorus of numbers. The bedroom becomes a garden, populated by animals and plants which the child has previously hurt. He attempts to make friends but they shun him. In his loneliness he calls for his mother, which causes the animals to attack him. The fight stops when a squirrel is injured. Noticing the blood, the boy bandages the animal, his kindness causing a change of heart amongst the angry creatures. They carry him back to his house where he is reunited with his mother.
