Based on the novel Entre Naranjos by Vicente Blasco-Ibáñez (Valencia).
Don Rafael Brull, the son of landed Spanish aristocrats, falls in love with Leonora, the daughter of one
of his family's tenants. Doña Bernada, who is ambitious for her son, breaks up the romance by
dispossessing Leonora's family. Leonora goes to Paris, where she becomes an opera singer; Rafael
stays at home and runs for public office, becoming engaged to Remedios. Leonora returns home for a
visit, and Rafael saves her life during a flash flood. Their passion reawakens, but Doña Bernada
persuades Rafael to renounce his love. Years pass. Rafael and Leonora meet only once again, each
having made his own life: Leonora is a world-famous opera singer, and Rafael is prominent in public
office.
