Poyāma is a vineyard keeper whose accidental convictions feed an affliction of pride propped loftily upon his success in the burgeoning nineteenth century wine industry. A Chilean immigrant, he brought to the United States an unrivaled appetite for work, a legacy of international winegrowing mastery, and a weakness - his love of horses. Even a greater love, the love of his life, is afforded no pass through the bulwark of those preoccupations. But, there is trouble in the vineyard, and calamity approaches upon thundering hooves in fulfillment of a promise containing the power of new beginnings.
