El abuelo

Don Rodrigo de Arista y Potestad, Count Albrit (Modesto Rivas), an old aristocrat who has been in Peru for many years trying to recover some gold mines that belonged to his ancestors, returns to Spain a ruined man.

On arriving, he finds out that his son Rafael had hidden his delicate state of health, and his wife’s, Lucrecia de Richmond (Ana María Ruiz de Leyva), discretions, from him. He soon goes to see his son, but finds he has just died. On the desk, there is an unfinished letter in which Rafael appeals against his legitimate daughter being left in his wife´s custody, because the other daughter is the product of his wife´s affair with a painter. 

Don Rodrigo de Arista y Potestad, conde de Albrit (Modesto Rivas), un anciano aristócrata que ha permanecido varios años en Perú tratando de recuperar unas minas de oro pertenecientes a sus antepasados, regresa a España arruinado.

Al llegar se entera de que su hijo Rafael le había ocultado su delicado estado de salud y las infidelidades de su esposa, Lucrecia de Richmond, (Ana María Ruiz de Leyva). Rápidamente acude a ver a su hijo, pero éste acaba de fallecer. Sobre el escritorio hay una carta sin finalizar en la que Rafael reclama a su esposa la custodia de su hija legítima, ya que la otra es fruto de las relaciones de ella con un pintor.
