On the day of Helena and Ramon's wedding, Mayor Vega receives the news that he is to be elevated to a post in the King's cabinet. It is his reward for having conducted the town's affairs without a single error. On this festive day, however, an error comes to light of monumental dimensions: Ramon, expecting Helena to be his bride, is married to her mother, Minerva, instead. What complicates matters is that it is to everyone's advantage to keep this misfortune from coming to the attention of the King's courier. To add to the complexitites of the situation, Minerva's husband, having been given up for dead, returns and demands his conjugal rights.
