Recent college graduate Chica plans a traditional Christmas party and invites her friends, but her mother Doña Tere opposes, for there are no pasteles, and without pasteles there is no Christmas! In the midst of struggling to find and prepare the pasteles the guests arrive, and the Christmas revelry begins. Meanwhile, two young men, John and Nando, both endeavor to win Chica’s love.  Doña Tere and Abuela favor Nando; friends, John. Meanwhile, Chica enjoys the party and the courtship of her suitors, showing no sign of opting for either of the two, certain that she was born to be free as the wind. The party concludes with the Christmas dinner, starring the pasteles!
