When his mother dies, he is befriended by Cita (Rosa Rosal), a prostitute with a golden heart who takes care of him, but eventually both fall into a deeper relationship. Since both are poverty-stricken, Vic decides to work with Carlo (Jose de Cordova), a smuggler.
Vic Bacani, younger brother of Rosa Rosal is shot
during the encounter of Tony Santos and the smuggler
Later, Vic and the smuggler ends up fighting causing the death of the latter and the younger brother of Cita in the crossfire.
In the end, the area is resettled and Vic and Cita find a new life in another settlement.
