Synopsis

Ricardo, the hero of many romantic escapades, is sent from Madrid by his irate father to continue his college studies. At school he meets and falls in love with Carmina, serenades her, and gradually wins her despite her feigned indifference. Then Octavio, a rejected suitor, reports to the Marqués de Castelar that Ricardo is keeping La Goyita, a former "companion in arms," in his room; although he denies the charge, the engagement is broken. Ernesto, the girl's brother, challenges Ricardo to a duel in which he deliberately allows himself to be wounded, thus clearing the way for a reconciliation between the lovers.
