An unsophisticated cattle farmer comes to the big city and learns the social differences, but finds true love. The days when men were men and a punch in a rival’s chops was enough to win the fair lady’s favour. The second full-length feature film to have ever been made in Uruguay and now kindly provided by the Cinemateca, Montevideo.
