Camila O’Gorman was the youngest daughter of an influential aristocratic family of Irish Catholic, French, and Spanish descent in 19th-century Argentina.
She represented the ideal of polite society of her time until she committed the sin of falling in love and running away with Father Ladislao Gutiérrez, a Jesuit priest.
Camila and Ladislao lived under assumed names as a married couple in a small town in northern Argentina for less than a year before they were discovered and returned to Buenos Aires for exemplary punishment.
