The 1937 Spanish-language romantic drama La Zandunga unfolds against the backdrop of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec Fruit Fair, where a young woman named Lupe finds herself being romantically wooed by three men at once: octogenarian Don Atanasio, local boy Ramon, and the sailor Juancho - an out of towner with whom she falls passionately in love. Unfortunately, Juancho must go away for an indefinite period of time, and Lupe - uncertain if he will even return per se - decides to marry Ramon instead. Then Juancho returns, complicating matters immensely for the young woman and forcing her new husband to make an extremely difficult decision.
