Director Fernando De Fuentes adapted the screenplay of Asi se Quiere en Jalisco (Love in Jalisco) from his own stage play. Maria Elene Marques stars as Lupe, who is strongarmed by her family into marrying wealthy ranchowner Don Luis (Carlos Moctezuma). Instead, she offers to work off her family's debts by taking a job as Don Luis' housemaid. Despite the lecherous advances of her employer, Lupe remains faithful to her true love, poor-but-honest Juan Ramon (Jorge Negrete). Though more lighthearted than ealrier De Fuentes efforts, this film is faithful to the director's long-standing theory that Mexico would be better off if the wealthy landowners would mind their own business.
