The title of this popular Mexican melodrama translates as May God Forgive Me. The incomparable Maria Felix stars as the survivor of the European concentration camps. While interred, Felix gives birth to a child, but loses track of the baby as she is shuttled from one camp to another. Upon her release, she falls in love with wealthy widower Fernando Soler, the father of piano prodigy Carmelita Gonzalez. Upon inheriting Soler's wealth, Felix passes it all along to Gonzalez, still clinging to the hope that she'll find true happiness with her long-missing daughter. The tragic finale seems rather unfair considering all the previous misfortunes heaped upon the heroine, but audiences seemed to enjoy suffering along with her.
