In October 1937, Dominican General Trujillo attempts to ethnically cleanse his provinces by brutally killing the black Haitians living there. In the small town Elías Piña, mulattos, blacks, and whites all speak their own racially mixed tongue of Spanish and French. When Trujillo decides to use correct pronunciation of the word "perejil" (Spanish for parsley) as a litmus test for his slaughter, mulatto Dominican Pedro must teach Adèle, his black Haitian lover, to wrap her tongue around the fatal word.
Octubre de 1937, Trujillo, el jefe, caudillo y generalísimo dominicano, obsesionado por "blanquear" sus dominios, ha dado una sorprendente consigna: quien no sepa pronunciar en perfecto español la palabra "perejil" perderá la cabeza. Pero en Elías Piña mulatos, negros, y blancos hablan su propia lengua mestiza de español y francés. El mulato dominicano Pedro y la negra haitiana Adèle viven allí en la plenitud de su amor y Pedro intenta enseñar a Adèle a pronunciar correctamente esa palabra fatal.
