Carmen La Coja Santos is a renowned local dancer who has long maintained an affair with the great Agustn, the married director of her troupe. An angry rivalry is sparked when she begins a passionate new liaison with Agusn's grandson, the gifted Manolo; her childhood polio returns; and her already aggravating relationship with her mother takes a difficult turn. But in the end, Carmen, unlike her namesake, finds her way back to happiness.
