In 1939, war is breaking out in Europe and in Mexico, it's the Day of Death Fiesta. We see one day in the life of Geoffrey, a British consul. He lives in an alcoholic haze of obscurity in a small southern Mexican town. The Consul's self-destructive behavior is a source of concern and sadness for his idealistic brother, Hugh, and his ex-wife, Yvonne, who have returned from a long journey hoping to heal Geoffrey and their marriage.
