Synopsis

Two parents Hucklebee and Bellomy have tricked their children Matt and Luisa into falling in love with each other by pretending to be in a feud. They call on the help of El Gallo, a professional bandit, and his small team of actors to create a scene in which Luisa is captured and Matt saves her in order to end the fabricated feud. The wall comes down, creating a happy ending for everyone - or so it would seem. When the lovers find out that the entire abduction and family feud are staged, they separate and then resolve with mutual understanding built on honest relationships and boundaries, both physical and emotional.
