Descripción o resumen: As they had been doing in previous years, six boys meet on the night of San Juan to tell stories. This year’s meeting is presided by a strong storm, which turns the atmosphere of the night to mistery and fear. Upon a table and by candlelight, a die determines the turn for each boy to tell his story. This gives way to three brief statements in which a series of symbols illustrate common motifs such as the passage of time, beauty, death, identity as well as magic and the nature of literature. The prominent figures find surprises constantly through situations and fantastic elements that lead up to a shocking conclusion.
