A traditional tale about a honest servant. On a ranch owned by don Ignacio, an apple tree flourishes under the conscientious care of the foreman, Juan Verdades, who reports daily to the rancher on the condition of his beloved tree. When a fellow rancher, don Arturo, boasts that he can make Juan tell a lie, don Ignacio replies, 'I'll bet my ranch against yours that you can't make my foreman lie to me.' Using his daughter as a pawn, don Arturo hatches a plot to win the bet, but things don't go quite as he anticipated.
