Juan Ruiz continues his quest for the perfect love. As the protégé of Zubeida, the owner of the public baths, he composes poems and recites them to the public. One of the poems has differences with the religious authorities and he is imprisoned.

An envoy from the Archbishop of Toledo frees him, trying to convince him to enter the clergy. Juan Ruiz gives the emissary the slip, who sends guards to Zubeida’s house to capture him.

Accompanied by Truhán, he goes to doña Mecia’s house, an important lady, and tries to obtain protection from her and her husband. He ends up sleeping with her, and Truhán ends up sleeping with the maid, but, on the verge of being discovered by the husband, the two of them have to escape.

Truhán, who prefers the tranquility of the thiefs in the markets, abandons Juan Ruiz, who continues in search of new adventures.
