After the death of his father and the need for money for his funeral, Manuel seeks Estrella, that puts him in touch with El Gitano (Victor Parra), a gangster who invites Manuel to join his band. With his help, El Gitano steal the factory where Manuel worked. The police stopped the boss of Manuel (father of the girl that he likes), but then they discover that Manuel is guilty. He flees and takes refuge with El Gitano and his band. In a showdown, Manuel tries to kill El Gitano. When the police arrive to arrest Manuel repents and on crutches, he was transferred in train to a prison.
After the success of the film A Family Like Many Others (1948), the filmmaker Alejandro Galindo and the actor David Silva had, separately, a tight work agenda. This somehow prevented that David starred Los dineros del diablo, a slum thriller that was finished starred by Roberto Cañedo and Victor Parra in the role of the villain.
