A man and a woman have secretly married. He belongs to a rich family and she is a poor actress and singer that is failing to success in her career. One day, he decides to tell his family that he's married and flies to Italy, where they live, but the flight has an accident and he dies. The man's brother goes to Spain to look for the body, and he discovers not only that his brother is married, but that his brother's wife is pregnant. She only asks the family for his education. Years go by, and Marisol, the girl's name will be ten years old soon. She lives in a school, and his uncle and mother visit her once a year. His mother has told her that she is a famous and rich actress so that the girl would not be shy with her friends about her origins. So, she can't never take her daughter with her in the summer, or she will know the truth. But Marisol's grandfather, who hates her mother for "having stolen his son", wants to meet the little girl, and he asks her to go to Italy during the summer... Written by Anonymous

Introducing the Spanish Shirley Temple.
2 June 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Marisol's first film reveals a talented and more beautiful variation on the spanish child star than audiences had seen before. This story about the estranged child of a widowed Spanish cabaret singer bonding with her bitter wealthy Italian grandfather is a classic of Spanish cinema and made Marisol a household name in the spanish speaking world. The songs, her blonde hair and blue eyes, and the sometimes contrived sentiments work beautifully every step of the way. A RAY OF LIGHT indeed.
