And thanks to Alirio Guaramato, a trumpet player, on a stormy night, while Mónica made her wish, Alirio's music makes Antonieta revive.


Everything happens after a night when the trumpeter Alirio Guaramato (Iván Tamayo), among the ravages of a fierce drunkenness, tries to vent his sorrows by playing his instrument and manages, by accident, to issue the exact note reserved for the cherubs that with the celestial trumpets must resurrect to the dead on Judgment Day. Nature shudders at such an event out of time and place. In the nearby cemetery the seals of a tombstone are broken in the family pantheon of Los García and Antonieta (Daniela Alvarado) is resurrected, who had died at the age of eighty but strangely reappears resurrected in a body of 20 years. Stunned yet, Antonieta decides to look for an address that remains in the inscription of her tombstone and thus arrives at the apartment where lives her granddaughter Mónica (Marlene de Andrade), a single woman of 28 year old. Meanwhile—from above— and sent by the Creator himself, the sullen angel named Jazzaboalnitanken–Jazz for friends–has descended with the mission of restoring at all costs the Universal Order that has been broken.
