A veneer of a morality play is layered onto this otherwise conventional slice-of-life drama by Argentine director Leopoldo Toree-Nilsson and co-scripted (as is often the case) by his wife, Beatrice Guido. The focus is on an attractive, rural working woman, Cora (Isabel Sarli), and the enigma of her scarred face. Cora now works in an Argentine backwater and flashbacks reveal how she once worked in a seedy roadside bar until she begins a relationship with a sheep rancher. She leaves the roadhouse to go away with him and then finds herself embroiled with an outlaw. The story continues, as circumstances build to make a bridge between her past and her present.
