In Barranco, a district of Lima, Peru, Santiago walks past a street vendor's stand and prepares to cross the street at an intersection. While waiting for the light to change; a woman that knows Santiago, Maria, walks up next to him, and he listens while she reminds him that he is is late for mass and is bringing the sacramental wine. He tells Maria that he will see her in church and walks into the street right when the light changes. However, Santiago gets knocked by a motorized scooter in front of a moving van. Then, time slows down temporarily for Santiago and he visualizes a means to escape getting hit by the van and catch the bag of wine bottles that is now flying in the air, and does so. Afterward, he finishes crossing the street and retrieves his soccer ball from Maria.
Later, Santiago sits in church with his mother, Iris, as a priest gives his sermon. Santiago plays with his soccer ball, and apologizes when his mom tells him to stop fidgeting. Upon leaving church, Santiago explains to his mother that he can see the world of opportunity in front of him. He tells her of his experience with the van that almost hit him, calling it a miracle. As Iris replies, Santiago spots a young woman watching him in a park across the street from the church.
Santiago then heads across the street towards the woman. He uses his new ability to sneak up on her, introduces himself, and learns her name is Elisa. After hearing Elisa's dilemma, Santiago tells her that it isn't stupid to have to church for answers, and references the priest's sermon that people have to help each other. When another soccer player reminds him of his game, Santiago encourages Elisa to stick around cause he has a feeling her prayers are going to be answered, and then leaves her to go play on the soccer field.
