One day Mba Abyss and his cousin are found with a much more tempting load: two hogs that were going to be loaded in an airplane and that, after being freed of their tyings, leave in stampede. Both youths, incited by hunger and the lack of so many good things in life, chase after them. But the owner of the pigs, a powerful person with various soldiers at his service, frustrates its capture, and as punishment, obliges both boys to get onto the plane.

To their surprise, they come to find, that in complicated circumstances, they find their first loves.
