Dr. Carlos Reynoso has settled into his medical practice and home life. Still, he continues to be involved with life in the lemon orchards. His cousin Josie and her friend Nacho are compelled to be involved in the investigation of a local plot by terrorists, who hope to create chaos in Southern California in otder to affect an international crisis. Their loyalty to their adopted country is tested by the potential for sacrifice, and by persons who would use them with little regard to their feelings, values or their humanity. Removing the heavy picking bag from one's shoulder and the diagonal sweat imprint left by the bag's strap is not easily forgotten, even when success is found. Yet the opportunity to reach for the brass ring, along with God's providence, is enough to allow triumph over the obstacles placed by some segments of society, and by life in general.
