Storyline

Rocío and her four brothers live in La Mancha village; without work, they win a few coins from tourists that stop by to see the view, showing them an old windmill and convincing them that it was the same that Don Quijote had fought in the old days. (Quijote being a literary, not an historical character). By chance, she meets a couple in difficulties, as the wife refuses to accept that her daughter died recently. The man asks her to pass as the missing daughter, in an attempt to get the wife interested in life again. Telling lies was her job, so Rocío accepts, knows a luxury life in Paris, but then one problem compounds with another, one lie leads to another, and the young woman doesn't know how to sort things out. Written by Artemis-9

A poor girl lives in La Mancha, Spain. Works as a guide tour to provide for her younger brothers
8 January 2007 | by IsagatoSee all my reviews

This is one of Rocio Durcal's movies that I enjoyed when I was 14 years old. I loved the songs and the story is cute. She lives nearby a windmill. To provide for her younger brothers she gets the idea of giving tours of the windmills, stating that these are the ones that Don Quixote fought, along with his sidekick Sancho Panza. She then passes as the daughter of one of the tourists that almost runs her over with his car. The man is trying to help his wife, who has been in shock since the death of their daughter. When he sees how Rocio looks like his own deceased daughter, he decides to try to bring his wife back to reality by having Rocio pass as their own daughter . She gets involved in many adventures as she tries to help this couple, as well as to keep providing for her family. This is a very innocent movie. There are no violence, sex or profanity in it at all. I wonder if her movies are on DVD. I would buy them all!
