Comedy of manners

 

In a dull, drab Mexican town where the inhabitants are beset by a permanent case of the doldrums. Dolores is devastated when her husband Pepe, fed up with her excessive generosity, leaves her. Determined to get him back, Dolores attempts to give up her saintly ways. But it's soon evident that Dolores has a gift. When she reinvents herself as Lolita and commits adultery with every man in town, she ends up bringing the colour and happiness back into her community.
