A prostitute working in a seaside port makes a devastating discovery about one of her clients in this classic Mexican melodrama from director Arcady Boytler. Following the death of her father and the shattering revelation that her boyfriend has been unfaithful, Rosario (Andrea Palma) resigns herself to a bleak fate of selling her love to sailors returning from the sea. When Rosario is rescued from the clutches of a drunken sailor by the kindly Alberto (Domingo Soler) she takes the man to her room and makes love to him. As the two lost souls begin to bare themselves to one another, they soon learn that their pasts are more connected than they initially suspected.
