In this entertaining comedy about love relationships versus male-female dichotomies, two couples evolve into two, unexpected and dynamic opposites. Emilito (Alberto Pujol) and Magdalena (Beatriz Valdez) are in love but not yet married. They are already sexually active, but their parents have no clue. Imagine their surprise when the young couple go to Emilito's apartment to spend some time alone and discover Emilito's widowed mother, Hilda (Consuelo Vidal) and Magdalena's father Felo (Reinaldo Miravalles) together in a compromising situation. It appears that the young couple's parents also had something to hide from them. Emilito's temper at his mother's behavior hits the roof, and Felo's anger at his daughter's loss of virginity runs equally high. Even though the two men berate both Hilda and Magdalena for their sinful actions, the young couple still love each other and they marry -- partly because Magdalena is pregnant. When the men cannot drop criticism of Hilda and Magdalena, they are in for an abrupt and painful awakening.
