Blood and Sand opens with Juan Gallardo (Tyrone Power) as a young boy. Along with friends from his home hometown in Sevilla, he journeys to Madrid in hopes of entering the world of bullfighting. They return ten years later, Juan now an up-and-coming matador, and his friends his quadrilla. Upon his return, Juan reunites with his childhood sweetheart, Carmen Espinosa (Linda Darnell), who has been waiting for him all these years.
