Synopsis

Drama. The story, set in a small Mexican town, revolves around the break-up of the marriage of Manolo and Dolores. Manolo's reason for leaving is that Dolores is too `good'. Dolores comes to the conclusion that she may be able to win Manolo's love back by behaving badly. When a stranger visits the local bar, Dolores sleeps with him. Dolores quickly makes this behaviour the norm for the local men of the town, making them feel happier, and the behaviour of the community begins to charge for the better. Then a group of prostitutes arrives from a nearby town, complaining that Dolores has taken away the group's `business'.
