It's the story of Natividad (Arcelia Ramirez), a 17 year-old girl, who is bored with her life at home and with her village and dreams of going around the world, perhaps with the handsome lorry driver, Leandro (Eduardo Palomo) who frequents the area. It's also the story of Benjamin (Eduardo Lopez Rojas), an older man who is dominated by his sister and who is thought to be the village's fool. Benjamin falls in love with Natividad, and decides to abduct her with the help of his friends.

Eduardo Palomo won an Ariel for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Leandro.
