Po koncu druge svetovne vojne se idealistični vojni veteran Paul Sutton vrne domov v San Francisco. Kmalu mu je jasno, da se je marsikaj spremenilo. Spozna, da nima prav veliko skupnega z nadležno ženo ter da je njegovo življenje postalo prazno in dolgočasno. Nekega dne Paul med službenim potovanjem spozna prikupno nosečo študentko Victorio. Dekle se vrača domov k družini, katere gospodar je njen strogi in večno nezadovoljni oče. Seveda se boji, kako jo bodo sprejeli, zato se Paul odloči, da bo zaigral njenega moža.
A Walk in the Clouds depicted a story about a young-married US military soldier, named Paul, who returned home after the World War II. In the middle of the way back home, he accidentally met a girl named Victoria who finished her master's degree. She has not married yet but got pregnant by accident. During the journey they talked a lot. Due to her pregnancy, Victoria was afraid of her father who respected old Mexican tradition. Thus, Paul proposed to pose as her husband to help her face her dad. Paul was not intended to cheat on his wife by pretending to be Victoria's husband. However, when Paul decided to come back to his home and left Victoria, he found his wife cheating on him. Paul then headed back to Victoria's house "Las Nubes" and confessed his true love to Victoria.
