The slab of dreams (La losa de los sueños)

Rosina lives with her mother Mrs. Rosa and her two sisters, Leonor and Estela, in absolute poverty, in the poorest part of the city. They survive thanks to the self-interested support that a gentleman, Don Paco, gives to Mrs. Rosa. The family’s only hope is the marriage of the girls. Rosina, intellectually curious, often attends to social gathering in cafes. One day, in a gathering she meets Enrique, a man from a rich family and they start dating. Everything seems to be going well but one day Rosina gets pregnant and Enrique, who has another rich girlfriend, abandons Rosina and his future son. Facing the reprisals of her mother and sisters about her absence, she starts looking for a job, not like her mother and sisters who are waiting for someone to take care of them, but she only has the support of her friend Cipriano, who is deeply in love with her.
