Sorrowful Córdoba

A story set in Córdoba and Madrid, Spain. Elio is a star matador, and is also engaged to his teacher Navarro's cheerful and sweet daughter. Life seems to be going very smoothly for him, but then one evening at a party he meets again his first love, Eva. Eva had married a nobleman and been widowed, and is now the lover of Ricardo Romero.

Elio's good friend Vicente is always committing adultery with other men's wives and not heeding Elio's warnings. One day he is caught. He wins the duel and kills his opponent, but his status as a matador is lost, and he disappears without a trace.

Although Elio had criticized Vicente, and while he thinks his fiance Anfelita is sweet, his feelings of love Eva drive him to arrange a clandestine meeting. Eva determines to dissolve her arrangement with Romero, and Elio confesses his true heart to Navarro, and his final bout is just opening in Córdoba. Anfelita is wounded by the broken engagement, but then falls in love with Romero's cousin Felipe.

Romero challenges Elio to a duel, but at the duel ground Elio meets Eva's mother, who tells him the dreadful truth. The two are siblings with different mothers. The duel is canceled. Without telling Eva the truth, Elio vows to her that he will never let go of this instant, and listens to her talk about their happy future. However, his mind is full of despair.

Elio's final bout. He has behaved lighthearted through to the end. He turns to meet the bull as if dancing, and in that instant the bull corners and gores him, and he dies...
