Fluff Mexican comedy about a very nuturing nurse named Esmeralda (Rojo) who just loves men so much that she's married to five of them—at the same time. When she decides to take a sixth spouse, that's one man too many for one of her jealous hubbies and he formally accuses her of polyandry. She gets arrested and must explain herself to a grim inspector (Obregon), who will naturally fall under her considerable spell. Based on a story by Elena Poniatowska.
