Synopsis: Cuando la noticia del gran hallazgo de Kino --la "Perla del Mundo"-- se esparció por el pueblo, nadie imaginó el poder que ésta tendría para engañar, corromper y destruir.

Al igual que su padre y su abuelo, Kino es un humilde pescador que recoge las perlas de los mantos del Golfo que alguna vez significaron enormes riquezas para los reyes de España y que ahora proveen a Kino, Juana y su pequeño hijo de un magro sustento. Un día como cualquier otro, Kino regresa a la superficie con una perla tan grande como un huevo de gaviota, tan "perfecta como la luna". La perla trae consigo la esperanza, así como la promesa del bienestar y la seguridad.
La perla, una historia de simplicidad clásica basada en el cuento popular mexicano, explora los secretos de la naturaleza humana, las profundidades más oscuras del mal y las luminosas posibilidades del amor.

Ganador del Premio Nobel de Literatura.
