Plot Summary

Quino is a Mexican diver who discovers a pearl at the bottom of the sea. He and his wife Juana, and their son have just taken possession of a pearl that is worth thousands. Everyday people try to get in on the cash, even Pearl Dealers try to rip them off. When Quino is attacked one day, he kills his attackers in self defence. His brother suggests their only hope is to leave the village. But on their journey to give their son an education they never had, someone may just do anything to prevent it.

Edit
Trivia Emilio Fernández, who was in love with Olivia de Havilland, thought she was the ideal actress to play the female starring role. De Havilland never knew of his secret love, but the director was able to get the government of Mexico City to change the name of the street he grew up on to "Dulce Olivia" (Sweet Olivia). See more »
