A pearl seeker finds a pearl, marvelous for its size and purity, and starts dreaming about his fortune. But then a silent fight starts between the fisherman and the pearl buyers. They do not want to pay him the real price; so they seek to buy it at a bargain, or even steal it, destroying the man's means of subsistence. It is a quite well written story, that describes how greed leads to pessimism and sadness.
