Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

A land-owning aristocrat's daughter has gotten pregnant. Her boyfriend deserts her when she refuses an abortion, and her father plans to kill the baby. The family's longtime nurse knows all this, of course, and she steals the baby away to her faraway village. Years later, when the baby has become a doctor, he unknowingly returns to the town of his birth. He stumbles across clues to his origins and begins to investigate. This Mexican-made Spanish language anti-abortion film has been dubbed into English.
