This story narrates the beautiful relationship between grandfather Paco, an old teacher who lives in Vilariño, and his great-grandson Francisquito, who’s four years old. One day, when the entire region is being desolated by devastating fires, his granddaughter Celia leaves him to care for Francisquito, and both old man and youngster talk about the fires, since anguish cares nothing about age. To lessen it, both of them plant a small tree seedling in a chamber pot, for later replanting in the soil when the fire is finally extinguished.
