Synopsis: Based on the novel by Lope de Vega.

The trouble begins when the young Countess Diana discovers that the secretary Teodoro is engaged to one of her maids. Outraged, she manipulates her servant into falling in love with another so she can have Teodoro to herself. The attention she heaps upon Teodoro inspires the jealousy of her blue-blooded suitors who begin plotting his demise.
