This historical drama addresses European immigration to the Americas (in this case to Buenos Aires, Argentina) during the last two decades of the 19th century. Among its main characters are a Spanish immigrant, a German one, and an established “Argentine.” They compete for the affection of a more established female Spanish immigrant, now a successful businesswoman, albeit a prostitute.
