After the death of her boyfriend, Lina Torres starts a fashion business to get ahead. When she meets Julio, the fabric seller, she lets herself be seduced by him and becomes his lover. Eventually Lina liquidates the business and gives Julio the money to expand his business. In this way, she thinks, they will live better after they are married. When the wedding day arrives, Julio does not appear. Given the steps he has taken, she is in a very precarious situation. Later, Lina runs into Julio, who gives her all kinds of excuses and offers to pay the debt he owes her. The check has no funds. Tired of so much deception, she ends up committing an impulsive act that makes Lina face a jury, where she will be defended by the attorney Antonio Aguirre.
