Director Fernando de Fuentes and star Maria Felix, the creative team responsible for the 1943 box-office hit Dona Barbera, once more combined their talents for La Mujer sin Alma (Woman without a Soul) Felix is cast as Tersa, a lowborn sewing machine girl with high-society aspirations. Hoping to escape her shabby environment, Tersa marries the fabulously wealthy, much-older Don Vicente (Alfredo Soler). Quickly tiring of her elderly mate, she begins a series of casual affairs, ending in an emotional crash-and-burn. Fernando Soler delivers the film's best performance as Tersa's best friend-severest critic. In America, Dona Barbera and La Mujer sin Alma were released in reverse order in the early months of 1945.
