Having recently escaped from a reformatory for troubled, a voluptuous young delinquent is taken in by a wealthy Spanish family and methodically proceeds to undermine their conservative religious household through seduction and intimidation. Acclaimed Spanish surrealist Luis Buñuel directs this lurid and slightly absurd melodrama starring Rosita Quintana.
