17 year-old Ben craves a car. His parents promise him one if he'll spend the summer in El Salvador rebuilding the houses of earthquake victims. He doesn't want to do it but decides that it's worth it to get a car. He goes and, although he doesn't really like the work, he comes to appreciate El Salvador's people and way of life. When he returns to California, he makes a most unexpected decision.
