A young "ugly duckling" from Barcelona (Jeannine Mestre) has been divorced for four years when she decides to fly to New York and hunt down her ex-husband. Her trials and tribulations in the Big Apple's seedy hotels and subways all center on her search for the ex, though there is no apparent reason why she is now hunting him out. Eventually, she spots him while she is riding a tourist bus and with some effort and much self-pity, discovers where he lives through using the Hispanic Institute in Washington Heights. By the time the last day of her trip arrives, she follows him from his loft apartment without his knowledge, intent on achieving the objective of her trip before she has to return home.
