A Mexican man elected to the office of mayor is forced to choose between love and justice after he is injured by one of his sworn enemies and becomes aware of a clandestine romance that could set his town ablaze in this classic comedy starring the legendary Pedro Infante. Valentin has been elected the mayor of Chihuahua despite having few constituents and too many sworn enemies to count. Soon after being injured by someone who doesn't view him as mayoral material, Valentin is taken in by the tough but fair Jesusita - who helps him to recover despite her intense dislike for the new city leader. During his convalescence, Valentin learns that a girl from a highly respected local family has entered into a Romeo and Juliet-type romance with his greatest enemy. Now, as the mayor struggle with his conscience in an attempt to do the right thing, he will find that the woman who once despised him may in fact be his greatest, if not most unlikely, ally.
