Three cheerful, friendly and beautiful Cuban girls leave La Habana for Madrid.  They are three sisters and Nena, the youngest, aspires to be an actress.  Their Cuban-Spanish aunt takes them to her home and provides a roof over their heads and meals …, but she also makes them work for her for free.

Nena -only 17 years old- escapes at night for her theater rehearsals.  During the Madrid night, Nena’s path is crossed by Igor, a handsome, slick fellow, who is also Cuban.

Although Igor is looking for a Spanish girl to “protect” him, the hot Cuban falls in love with the lovely Nena.  And the course of destiny is twisted.

Nena ends up being a success in the television soap operas, and Igor will have to return to his old job, a professional good-looker, and charmer of Spanish girls.
