The Depression has the almost emptied the village as it tightened it grip on the farmland. after a fierce battle with her mother Matilde,  Feliz leaves for Albuquerque with her two silent and staunch brothers as chaperones.  The country has plunged into war. Feliz works alongside of her anglo girlfriend Judy packing parachutes for the new Air Force cadets training at Kirkland Army Air Force Base.   Her world is expanding beyond her mother's worst fears.  It's a world of men and especially one particular Texan.
