Only a few off-beat musical moments interrupt the flow of this melodrama about a schoolteacher who loses his sight. Aptly directed by Emilio Gómez-Muriel, José Elias Moreno plays the teacher who suddenly faces the loss of his job when the state refuses to keep a blind instructor on the payroll. Meanwhile, the teacher's students are a tough lot who do their best to be as obnoxious as possible, never giving him a moment's peace with their practical jokes. When it finally dawns on the kids that their teacher is about to lose his job, they start re-evaluating their actions.
