In 1840's Buenos Aires, Argentina, a beautiful young socialite named
Camila falls in love with Ladislao, a Jesuit priest. After several
failed attempts at fighting his own feelings, he ultimately succumbs to
her. The two later escape to a far off, secluded village where they
assume new identities as husband and wife and begin running a children's
school. After several months of relative happiness, the couple's
identity is discovered by a local priest. Under moralistic pressure from
both Camila's family and the Catholic church the authorities apprehend
the lovers, and imprison them for sacrilege.
