However, Lorenzo (Pedro Infante), her companion since childhood, has always been in love with Chabela and, getting notice of her impending marriage, he feels depressed.

Eventually, Chabela and Lorenzo fight in barn, but then they kiss, make up, sang together the folk song La Barca de Oro, get married, and a baby daughter is born.
