This biographical drama illustrates scenes from the life of the Mexican author of many cherished romantic poems Manuel Acuña, who died by his own hand at the age of 24. While studying at the Academy of San Carlos, the young rake seduces his maid and then shuns her for the arms of another. However, his meeting with the lovely Rosario de la Peña marks a pivotal moment in his life; Rosario is flattered by the poems he publishes which are dedicated to her, but she steadfastly refuses his persistent (even obsessive) efforts to seduce her.
