The touching story of an orphan named Alfredo. Scarred by fire, he wanders from place to place until he discovers an orphanage full of happy and well cared for children. He asks the priest in charge if he can be accepted. Fearing the child will be ridiculed and rejected, Father puts the question before the other children. After a dramatic pause, one boy speaks in the name of the others - "He is my brother." The joy of Alfredo's acceptance into this family is tied in with music and celebration already happening at the "Hacienda." Based on a true story, and filmed on location, Baptism captures the texture and feel of Mexico, and this becomes an integral part of the simple, but moving drama.
