After their business in Seville goes bankrupt, Carmen and Paco emigrate to Stockholm, where, while penniless, one must endure the living before returning to their homeland. While in Sweden, Carmen found a job as a dancer while Paco manages to return to Seville. Meanwhile, the dancer Carmen gets into a fight on her job and is being let go. Having some spare cash, she visits the hospital where she gets a plane ticket from Dr. Petersen, a physician who has been invited to a Medical Congress in Seville. Dressed up as him, she tries to make to Seville, but on the plane and at the airport she meets various congressmen and comedy ensues.
