Pelayo and Elisenda find a very old man with wings in their courtyard. The man speaks in an unknown language, and they cannot figure out who he is and where he came from. Pelayo chains the man up in the chicken coop, and people soon start harassing him. Some believe the man is an angel, but Father Gonzaga convinces them that it couldn’t be, since the man doesn’t speak Latin.
The town forgets about the man with wings as soon as a spider-woman comes with the new carnival in town.
With time, the man with wings becomes stronger. One day, he flies away from the house.
