The film, directed by Fred Niblo ( The Mark of Zorro ), tells the tale of Juan Gallardo (Valentino): the son of a poor widow from Seville who truly manages to transform his life from rags to riches. Despite the fact that he begins his life with no money, he ends up going against his mother's wishes and pursuing a career as a toreador.
Before he knows it, Juan falls in love, gets married and becomes quite a success in the bull-fighting ring. He finds that success doesn't always stay sweet, though, as the love he develops for another woman quickly puts his personal and professional lives in jeopardy while at the same time threatening his position in society.
