A romantic drama as Lina tries to marry Álvaro while avoiding the evil Carlos that her father Don Bernardo has chosen for her.

The plot could have been covered in 20 minutes, but is much padded with scenic shots of Medellín and the countryside and even a plug for Columbian coffee. The ending may be confusing, but the marriage near the end is by proxy, so the real groom is not there in person.

Said to be the biggest Columbian production of the silent era, it often has the look of American and European pictures of 10 or 15 years earlier, with the interior walls obviously being painted flats and some of the night scenes clearly shot in broad daylight. The acting is OK, but is often melodramatic and sometimes to the camera. Interesting as a look at upper class life at the time.
