The Pearl tells the story of Kino, a Mexican pearl diver whose life is transformed when he finds a pearl as 'perfect as the moon'. Kino believes that the pearl will make his dreams reality, he will marry Juana in the church and their son Coyotito will be educated. Obsessed by this dream, Kino is blind to the greed and fear the pearl arouses in his neighbours, and ultimately himself. Soon the dream of wealth and riches turns to dust when the pearl attracts only enemies, misfortune and grief.
