The events take place at the turn of the century. Batista, the protagonist, receives a letter from his brother who is living in Argentina and asks him to join him there. The brother struck it rich and for this reason is inviting him and the orchestra of the little town to his wedding, offering to pay for the trip. Batista has a dream: to try his chances in Argentina with a new wine that he obtained through a grafted plant he will take along with him. However, in the middle of the ocean, the orchestra decides not to get off in Argentina and chooses New York, in the wake of the music and of the Titanic, which has just passed them.
