This Spanish-language detective story investigates the death of a lovely young woman (Conchita Velasco). The film begins with the discovery of her body on a beach in southern Spain. A vagrant tinker (Fernando Fernan Gomez) who is implicated in her death investigates it alongside the police. Also suspected are a local fisherman (Alfredo Mayo) and his son, whom the deceased had been living with. Through flashbacks we discover that the fisherman and his son had some jealous conflicts because of her. Perhaps she was the lover of both of them. Certainly she had a flirtatious way about her, which is how the tinker has become a suspect.
