Set during the time of the Mexican Revolution at the beginning of the 20th century, this routine melodrama stars Luis Aguilar as a mythical (invented) masked hero fashioned after silver-screen swashbucklers or lawmen like Zorro or the Lone Ranger ("El Llanero Solitario," popular in translation on Latin American television for several years). The masked rider needs his face covered, of course, or his enemies will discover his real identity. At the same time, his enemies are masked, too, making it a rather anonymous war. The hero is put through his paces forwarding the cause of the Revolution, saving the requisite damsel in distress, and unmasking and toppling the bad guys.
