It is the wedding day of the beautiful sisters Mari Paz, Mari Pó, and Mari Pepa with their respective fiancés Alejandro, Manolo, and Leopoldo. Moments before the ceremony, the girls find their widow mother, Helena, secretly crying, and interpret this to show her loneliness and sadness that they are leaving. The girls decide not to attend the wedding. They invent outlandish excuses so that Helena does not know the truth. Their three grooms, left at the church, come home angry and the girls, amid much mess and discussion, break the news to their troubled mother. Though they continue to be in hiding from their boyfriends, when the men learn the real reason that the girls did not come to the wedding, they devise a plan that in principle seems nonsense. They try to marry off Helena so she will not be so alone; then they will be able to marry with a calm conscience. The girls go to their fiancés and the couples search for a boyfriend for the mother, without being much fixed on the age and condition of the candidates. They also force Helena to wear more modern and elegant make-up. They organize a party for all of Helena's candidates. All their attempts will be in vain: the daughters learn with astonishment that the rejuvenated mom is in love with Doctor Morales, a great friend of the family. Helena already has been with this gentleman for several years and what she most desires is to mary off her daughers so that she can be with him! Finally, the number of weddings rises to four and all boyfriends have smiles and happiness.
