The longing and critical review of the copla is lived through the history of the marqués de Almodóvar, a passionate ambassador who organized Franco's folkloric festivals; generous, womanizer, excessive, wasteful, himself the protagonist of his own copla. In love in his youth with a Concha Piquer chorus girl, he dedicated his life to collecting fetishes and memories of all the cante divas with which to organize a sentimental museum in his decaying castle, filling it with showcases where he could store his longings. When he died, destitute, in the pension of his last mistress, also a cupletist, she disputes her legacy with the housekeeper who took care of him and her picturesque collections all her life. family castle. A dear diplomatic friend recalls his fanciful existence emotionally. An aesthetic that is part of the feeling of the Andalusian people. And as a common thread "Ojos Verdes", the most beautiful song of songs of his rich songbook.
