    Instead of entering the world crying, like other babies, Jubilo was born with a smile on his face. He had a gift for hearing what was in people’s hearts, for listening to sand dunes sing and insects whisper. Even as a young boy, acting as an interpreter between his warring Mayan grandmother and Spanish-speaking mother, he would translate words of spite into words of respect, so that their mutual hatred turned to love. When he grew up, he put his gift to good use in his job as a humble telegraph operator

    Mexico, 1910. Op een haciënda woont Mama Elena met haar drie dochters Tita, Rosaura en Gertrudis. Door de familietraditie veroordeeld ongehuwd te blijven, kan Tita haar gevoelens alleen uiten door de uitzonderlijke maaltijden die ze bereidt. Met onverwachte gevolgen: als Tita's geliefde Pedro trouwt met haar jongste zus, veroorzaken haar tranen in de bruidstaart een catastrofe op het huwelijksfeest, en haar oudste zus stort zich na het eten van Tita's gestoofde kwartels in de armen van een revolutionair.
