A ruthless, comical, fun-loving, romantic rebel general, General Jose Juan Reyes, prepares to make a stand against the Mexican Army.  Reyes takes over a small Mexican town and imprisons the town leaders, including the father of fiery Maria Dolores Penafiel, who is among those citizens who take a stand against Reyes.  Maria protests by slapping the face of Reyes, the first of many times, and he is so enthralled by her spirit that he immediately declares she must become his wife.  In response, she shows some more spirit, she sets off a firecracker under his horse.  Reyes begins to soften and, with the aid of Father Sierra and Maria, who is about to marry her local suitor, he helps the town fight an influenza epidemic.  He decides to retreat than stage a battle in the town against the advancing government troops.  Maria is so stirred by the bugles of the retreating rebels that she leaves her marriage ceremony and marches with Reyes and his ragged army across the desert into the sunset .
