Synopsis

Two fathers decide that they want their children to fall in love. The girl, Luisa, is a daydreamer with an active imagination. The boy, Matt, is a romantic. The two fathers decide to instigate a mock feud amongst themselves in order to help the boy and girl fall in love. They figure that this feud will give them the excuse to say no to the relationship, which of course will simply encourage the children's love even more. The fathers go so far as to hire El Gallo to stage a mock abduction of Luisa, in which Matt can become a hero and save her. After this madcap action, Luisa and Matt fall deeply in love. Soon enough, the children realize their parents staged the feud and their love fades away. After both undergo a little "life experience" on their own and are hurt by it, they reunite once again with much less drama.
