The third word (La tercera palabra)

Pablo is a teenager who has always lived in the mountains away from civilization. After his father’s death, he moves in with his aunts and cousins. They hire Margarita in order to teach him how to read, write and everything he should already know at the age of 24. His family intentions are not totally honest, since they want to keep his inheritance; however, they must first declare him insane.

Julio, Pablo’s cousin, was Margarita’s lover during his college years. He continues to be secretly in love with her, so when she and Pablo begin to sympathize, Julio will have one more motive to finish him off. Passion, jealousy, ambition, and other circumstances get muddled up in this passionate story of emotional self-discovery for Pablo, who finds out the third word after God and Death: Love.
