Sisters Marta and Lucía face the loss of their brother with a cocktail of emotions; they are both in love with Felipe, the man who murdered their brother in a duel. Marta, engaged to be married to an old friend of her father’s, feigns a religious calling to avoid the match, while all the time finding endlessly inventive ways of meeting with her lover, Felipe.

Two sisters, Marta and Lucía, mourn the loss of their brother. He was killed by the man they both love, Felipe. Their father, Don Gómez, conceals his arrangement to marry Marta to an old friend of his, the Captain, and brings his daughters to a fiesta in Illescas, where they attend a bullfight. Marta knows that Felipe will be there, and hopes her father will not see him. In Illescas, Felipe learns that the sisters, Marta and Lucía, are in town, and are being pursued by two other young men, Diego and Juan.

When Gómez and his daughters return to Madrid, everyone is amazed at Marta’s sudden conversion.  Marta visits the sick and needy, and although her father disapproves, he admires how she has thrown off her previously frivolous ways. The girls’ suitors, Diego and Juan, are disappointed that they can no longer court the sisters, as Lucía is courted by the Ensign and Marta dedicates herself to her religious acts of charity.
