A small, arid town in North-Eastern Spain lies empty save for two establishments: the Samson men’s briefs factory, and a brothel. Fiery and beautiful Silvia, daughter of the brothel’s owner, becomes pregnant to José Luis, whose family owns the Samson factory. But Conchita, José Luis’ socially ambitious mother, fears her son will marry the daughter of a prostitute and thus hires sexy, young Raúl to seduce Silvia.
