Child star and teen idol Pedrito Fernández takes the lead role in this slight drama. In the story, he is a young teen who has been abandoned by his family to live his life on the streets of Mexico City. Three university students become acquainted with him and adopt him as their own, cleaning him up, buying him clothes, and feeding him regularly. When the lad falls in love with a girl from a "good" family, they even help him learn how to speak "correct" Spanish. What they can't do is provide him with a background the girl's family will approve of. When the girl's parents learn of his attempt to fabricate his background, they forbid him to see their daughter. Bitter, the lad returns to the streets once again.
