Summary "August Evening narra las dificultades de Jaime, un jornalero indocumentado de edad avanzada, y de su joven hijastra, Lupe, una viuda que se niega a rehacer su vida. Lupe es más que una hija para Jaime, incluso más que sus propios hijos. Ambos intentarán mantenerse unidos ... pero el cambio es inevitable"--Container.
Jaime and his wife Maria live in a poverty-stricken town in Mexico. They trudge through life, but enjoy each other's company. Their widowed daughter-in-law, Lupe lives with them. When Maria dies unexpectedly, Jaime becomes so distraught that he stops caring for himself and Lupe. The two move from relative to relative, but tensions mount and Jaime and Lupe leave. In time, Lupe lands a job at a factory and Jaime scours the streets and neighborhoods looking for random jobs. He tries to get her to marry Luis. Completely unwilling at first, Lupe eventually learns to appreciate Luis.
