The old colonel and his wife live in misery, waiting for the letter from the government in which they will notify him of the concession of the promised pension for his services during the war. But that letter never arrives and in the meantime the old couple lives in poverty feeding a fighting cock, which is their only hope of survival.
As time progresses and the letter still does not arrive, they must face a dilemma: feed the rooster or feed them. The greed of the people, the usury of the supposed friends, the fatality and stupidity of the war, are mixed with the loneliness of the old colonel defeated by life but to which there are still two treasures left: his wife's love and dignity.
The tragedy of the old colonel is the reflection of injustice in the world. His ability to resist the adversities of destiny is infinite, guided by a rebellion as solid as his hope and his faith in the human being.
