The legendary Spanish screen siren Sarita Montiel headlines this gentle romantic drama; she stars as Soledad, a beautiful yet humble violet seller whose life turns a fantastic corner when she meets and falls deeply in love with the wealthy suitor Fernando. Unfortunately, because he is the product of Madrid's upper crust, the reality of class differences soon checks in and he splits off from her. Yet Soledad aggressively pursues her own brand of success and establishes herself as a popular singer - effectively giving herself another chance with her old love.
