In a poor, dusty corner of Northeastern Brazil, pregnant Darlene says good-bye to her aged mother, her dusty settlement town, and sets off to be married. The wedding doesn't happen; she returns home years later with a son, in time to bury her mother. Darlene isn't especially young or gorgeous, but she is radiant with a full-bodied, earthy eroticism that proves irresistible to first one, then two, and finally three men. If Darlene needs all three to make one complete husband, well, they believe she has enough love to go around. The film weds the humor and magic of a folk tale to a very modern feel for the psychological dynamics between men and women, and for the subtle politics of male rivalry in a macho culture
