A Cuban rumbera undergoes an ordeal to fall in love with a Mexican doctor. The problem between the two is that the man is married.



Shortly before starring in the film Al son del mambo (1950), the Cuban rumbera Amalia Aguilar highlights of this musical film with a minimal plot. Fortunately, the dramatic moments of the film are buried by musical interventions of Daniel Santos, Bienvenido Granda, La Sonora Matancera, Los Panchos, Rita Montaner and the explosive presence of Amalia, who brings a sensuality and rhythm out of series.[1]
