Maximo Brockman (Adrian Ghio) is an Argentine immigrant who marries Jana (Mira Jokovic), a young Jewish girl from Yugoslavia. After the wedding, they bid goodbye to her parents and board an ocean liner bound for South America. The naive Jana soon discovers her husband is a notorious white slave trader. Although he keeps her as his wife, Maximo forces Jana to work as a prostitute in a Buenos Aires brothel. When she falls in love with an honest local, Maximo resorts to blackmail to keep her. Later, Jara's brother comes over from Yugoslavia to save his sister and restore the family's good name.
