Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This Spanish drama explores an encounter between a well-educated mountain-climber and a young shepherdess who has been kept mute by her suffocating family. Lost during a climbing expedition, Don Ramiro (Jose Luis Lopez Vazquez) finds shelter and safety through the help of the speechless girl (Kili Manyer). Though her brother is deaf and half-mad, there is nothing wrong with the girl, and Ramiro begins to teach her how to speak. This interferes with the established pattern preferred by the girl's family, and Ramiro is accused of rape and carted off to prison.
