Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Originally Yo Balle Con Don Porfirio, this Mexican musical comedy is built around the talents of singer/dancer Mapy Cortes and pianist/conductor Emil Tuero. In a plot hinging on a case of mistaken identity, wealthy socialite Don Servero has kept a big secret from his wife and teenage daughter. Unbeknownst to his family, he has fathered another child with his mistress, and she is the spitting image of his "legitimate" daughter. Though Servero works hard to keep his secret daughter a secret, things get out of hand when his wife finally discovers the ruse and when the beautiful girls' boyfriends end up with the wrong girls.
