Esmeralda Comes by Night

De noche vienes, Esmeralda

Bewitching, passionate and beautiful, Esmeralda (Maria Rojo) is happily married — to five husbands! But just as she’s about to marry groom No. 6, she’s charged with polygamy. She reveals her reasons for marrying each husband to stern Judge Solorio, no match for her charm.
