Central America in 1915. It is the age of revolutions, tyranny, captains and colonels in a small provincial town that is often invaded by some revolutionary group or other. There is a brothel of which the Madame Simone and most of the girls, are French. Many of the girls are in love with rebel leader Carlos Rrbas and when government troops re-occupy the area, they hide him. When the soldiers discover him, they take both him and the girls prisoner. The governor sends the girls out in a cart to amuse the troops, but they manage to escape along the way and take refuge in a convent where they take over the nuns.
