Film told in flashbacks of an older man's obsession for a woman who can belong to no-one but can frustrate everyone. The backdrop is SternbergÍs surreal and fantastic Carnaval in Spain. In a café the older man details his encounters with the heart breaker that his younger friend has only just met at the parade. Forewarned, the young man swears he will avoid the fate of his friend, but rushes all the same to his evening rendezvous. A dreamlike story of frustrated, lost romance, spoken in the past tense, never really resolved. Written by
Kiss me .. and I'll break your heart!

Capt. Don Pasqual 'Pasqualito' Costelar
I've been thinking things over for some time now, and I'll be happy to make you my wife. Then no one could speak ill of you.
But no one speaks ill of me now!
