In this melodrama, Maria has been waiting for her boyfriend to be released from prison. He is an aspiring luminary in the boxing world. Though she is a prostitute, she earns her keep primarily as a "kept" woman and doesn't walk the streets. At first he is glad to see her, but soon his dreams of making the big time in the boxing game lead him to send her away. Perhaps he only wants to concentrate on his athletic pursuits in that ascetic way some sports figures favor. However, she must still earn her keep, and she takes up briefly with a married man. Meanwhile, followers of the Afro-Cuban belief system Santeria (a voodoo-like religion) have been warning her that the loas (spirits) are not happy with her, and she needs to ask their forgiveness for affronts she has committed. Soon after taking up with the married man, she meets a man who would like to marry her and take her away from the world of sex-for-hire. However, the married man she was with earlier turns out to be insanely jealous as well as being deeply insulted at being spurned by Maria. His efforts to get revenge on her soon take on a violent, even tragic turn.
