Hit by the La Lupe singing bug, Yolanda wants to be a singer at any price. She’ll do whatever it takes, nothing and nobody will get in her way. And if to get what she wants she has to go against her father’s wishes, all the better; she’d do anything not to stay in her village being just another woman, of the kind that gets married, puts on weight, and gives birth to children one after the other.

Contagiada por el virus de La Lupe, Yolanda quiere ser cantante como sea. Se dejará la piel si fuese necesario, nada ni nadie se interondrá en su camino. Si para lograrlo tiene que llevarle la contraria a su padre, mejor tadvia, lo prefiere, a quedarse en su pueblo siendo una mujer más, de esas que se casan, engordan y paren muchos hijos.
