Luisa Clementina will be twenty three years old and, according to the society in which she lives, she will soon become a woman whose youth has remained a treasure that she could not take advantage of or —as her family would say—a sad and pathetic spinster. Tired of living under the rules of a father who does not allow her to study medicine, Luisa will rebel and give up her hot tub baths, the rice powders that hide her dark complexion and the delicacies that the maids prepare, to now achieve what she has been denied so much. Disguised as a working class man, she will discover a classist and imminently masculine world in which women have no voice or vote. Fortunately, she crosses path with Victor Viviani, an Italian businessman, and his uncle Eulalio, both of whom will offer her their help to clandestinely take the test she needs to enter university.

While a deep discontent affects the saltpetre miners of northern Chile, twins Victor and Luisa Carvajal dream of traveling to greater Santiago to continue their education and envision a prosperous future in the business world. Unfortunately, the lack of resources affecting the family only allows for one to travel: Victor. Luisa, confined to domestic life and overwhelmed by the news that her parents have communicated to her, finds no greater consolation than looking for work as a lunch boy, a job performed exclusively by men. Being aware of her condition as a young woman, she borrows her brother's clothes and disguises herself secretly to find the remote possibility of freedom. However, what begins as an innocent role-playing will kickstart a progression—first slow and then irreversible—that will leave behind the witty and incisive Luisa she believed herself to be. Framed in the workers' conflict that culminates the massacre of Iquique "Domingo Santa Maria" School, Víctor 1907 is the moving and epic story of a woman ahead of her time.
