Two elderly women bear the consequences of a crime involving their respective grandsons - one is the victim, the other is the suspect. Both weak and poor, they laboriously solicit money in the midst of a storm - one for the victim's burial, the other for the suspect's bail bond. Lola Sepa, together with her 8-year-old grandson, lights a candle on the spot beside a bridge where an elder grandson was killed by a cell phone snatcher the night before. Then she goes to collect money for the burial and court hearing. Lola Puring painstakingly raises funds for the temporary release of her grandson, the assailant, who refuses to languish in jail. Lola Sepa refuses the sum offered by Lola Puring. But she eventually relents and accepts the amicable settlement, realizing her grandson is not coming back to life.
