With Andrea Palma, Pedro Armendáriz, Alberto Galán
One of the first Mexican noirs, filmed with velvety style by Gabriel Figueroa, Bracho’s claustrophobic tale takes place over a single night, with Armendáriz, the great heroic star of the Golden Age, cast as a union activist on the run from assassins. He bumps into his old flame Julieta (Palma), who seizes the chance to help him – but at what cost?
