Upon the death of her husband, Bernarda imposes a rigorous eight-year mourning on her daughters. So rigorous that they will not even be able to leave the house, thus frustrating the needs of their three daughters, “of deserving age”. After denying Martirio as a bride to a Humanes “because they win, he commits Angustias to Pepe el Romano. The appearance of this character triggers a series of events that degenerates into a confrontation between the mother and the daughters. Poncia, one of the house's trusted maids, tries to warn the lady about the consequences of such a rigid discipline. But Bernarda rejects all criticism; firstly so as not to lose his apparent security and, secondly, because he cannot accept advice from a person who is at his service.
