Synopsis
Vertigo, an elderly Basque brother of Figaro, probably owes his name to the dizzying number of abilities and virtues with which he tries to impress Manuelita. She, however, is waiting faithfully for her fiancé Pepito, who was called up for the army years ago and has not sent her any message for several months. Instead of Pepito, Miguel, Manuela’s friend from her youth, arrives from Madrid. He has learned his share about how to handle women in the capital. Vertigo would like to profit from that knowledge. When at the welcoming drink Miguel somewhat ungallantly descends upon Manuela and is rejected by her, he generously agrees to release Pepito from the military. But things do not get that far, because a letter from Pepito tells of his marriage to another woman. Miguel and Manuela realize that they are destined for each other. Their friend Vertigo is left empty-handed once again.
