In the plot there is a young woman called Camila who had a forbidden love for her priest Ladislao Guiterrez. After many true "confessions" to him Ladislao falls in love with her and they flee their home for the provinces. After arriving in the provinces they get married and have many steamy nights together. After A while there is a priest who recognizes Father Ladislao on night while he attended a rooster fight. So the couple was thrown in jail to await their sentence. While in Jail Camila found out that she is pregnant with her husbands' baby. However, this does not stop the government to sentence them both to death. They die at the hands of a firing squad eventhough it took longer for Camila because the men did not want to shoot her because of her pregnancy. In the end the couple got what they wanted to be together and in love for eternity.

I think that the Spanish are more open with things of this nature. This movie was very sad and at the end I really wanted Camila and even the father to be able to have life because the only crime that they had committed was falling in love….
