Venusita falls in love with the son of a wealthy family whose mother sends her son off to the United States in order to keep the two apart. Not to be rejected so easily, Venusita visits Saurina the sorceress who comes up with a spell that kills off the merchant and zaps the son back home, but Venusita's problems are far from over.

This is a good movie by many reasons. The movie is about witchcraft and a passion thriller around it. It was written by a very known Mexican writer Hugo Argüelles in conjunction with Vega herself. Great actors appear in the movie including Emilio "indio" Fernandez and the always enigmatic Irma Serrano who is already celebrity of its own. This film passed unnoticed in Mexico, where I saw it. In part thanks to the lousy distribution system of that time, which used to privilege the foreign movies. Nowdays there are no longer Mexican movies so the distributors no longer have the concern of programming Mexican movies. I personally believe the movie could had turn into a cult movie. It has a good plot, good intentions, interesting actors and low budget.
