Three mysterious deities visit impoverished peasant Macario when his wife prepares for him his favorite meal, a whole turkey. After withholding the succulent bird from both God and the Devil, Macario finally offers half to Death, hoping the gesture will stave off his own demise. As a reward, Death offers Macario healing water that will work only at the discretion of Death himself.
