In this spare Spanish drama, Sara is a morally upright woman with but one failing: she wants to be a stage star. Unfortunately, she has been an actress for a long time, and stardom is still a distant dream. In order to remain on the stage, she sacrificed the prospect of marriage to a concert pianist from a respectable family. She is now considering the amorous (but not honorable) proposals of a theater owner. One night, the star of the show "takes a powder" and Sara steps into her role. She is a great hit with the audience, but the old star is back at her job the next night, and Sara gets no further opportunities.
