This youth-oriented romantic drama is one of several that have been based on the novel by the same name by early 20th century writer Alejandro Perez-Lugin. Director Rafael Gil brings forth a lively, entertaining version of the story about Gerardo (Arturo Fernandez), a young man coming from a turbulent background in Madrid to the city of Santiago de Compostela to enroll in the university. The errant Gerardo goes reluctantly off to study but soon the charms of Compostela and the surrounding countryside, and the excitement of student life win him over. What really turns the tables though, is his interest in Carmina (Ana Esmeralda, an accomplished flamenco dancer). Now Gerardo's problem is a new one -- how can he convince Carmina's parents that he is an acceptable suitor for their daughter?
