abstract
Set in 1909, Maria is an outcast in her small Mexican village because of her late mother's immoral behavior. Shunned and outcast, forbidden to earn a living, she lives a solitary life. Her only friends are the town priest and a peasant whom she loves and wants to marry. Their poverty and misery are exploited by the local farm lord and a well-to-do city artist who sees in her face the perfect woman whom he wishes to paint. This leads everyone into tragedy.
