Exhausted by the escape from his former life (both metaphorically & literally), Stuart Whitman hitches a ride in the horsetrailer of a car. There he meets Laura Gemser, & soon they start relating their lives' stories to each other, which, while being very much contrasting on the surface, seem to have rather a lot in common. He tells about his wife who hated to live here in Mexico, being married to him, rich manager of an oil-company, & forced to live in a small backwoods-village. But when he finally agreed to move elsewhere, she was actually killed by the same country she hated so much, when her rowing boat went over a waterfall. Laura Gemser meanwhile started out as a poor farmhand, with her fantasy of a better life being derived from a Charé-soap-commercial. So she left her intended husband - a poor farmhand himself - to see the big world with playboy Gabriele Tinti. But Tinti proved to be not all the gentleman he seemed to be, soon losing her at gambling. After several sexual misadventures, Gemser's quest for a good life ends at the grocery-shop of Oreste (Enrique Alzugaray), an old, one legged, ugly, but kind-hearted & honest man. & even though he treats her well & she even does him sexual favours, she is not happy, still dreaming of a better life, still shown in the Charfmé soap commercial. After Whitman & Gemser have told their stories to each other, they descover a strong emotional bond between them & actually have sex in the trailer. But their time together is all too short, & soon Whitman has to get off. When he realizes what he has just lost out of neglect, it seems already too late, because when he finds the trailer again, Gemser is already gone ... Will he ever find her again.


While not being the most inventive movie of them all, this is actually a nice & interestingly told erotic melodrama, with the stories of the 2 protagonists intercut with each other, complimented by some nice landscapes & beautiful photography.
