• Rocio and other children who live on her street rely on certain trees as markers to indicate its "up" and "down" sections.
• The "up" section is lined with homes and occupants who are not familiar to the children.
• The "down" section is lined with homes occupied by Rocio, the other children, and their families, thus connoting their familiarity with both those homes and their occupants.
• The years go by, and the marker trees remain in place; but transition occurs in the lives of some living on that street.
• Rocio's cousin and two boys who have lived there move away.
• A stern older man and his mean son however, continue to occupy the house next door to Rocio and her family.
• The mean son destroys a willow tree long cherished by others living on that street; and is sent to a home for disturbed boys.
