PlotEdit

Abismo de pasión takes place in La Ermita, Yucatán, where El Grupo Anito factory is located. Rosendo, the plant's owner, is having an affair with Carmina. Later that night, he, his wife Alfonsina, and their son Damián have dinner with Rosendo's best friend Augusto, his wife Estefania, their daughter Elisa, and Carmina, Estefania's sister. Alfonsina privately tells Augusto that she believes his wife is cheating on him with her husband. When Rosendo and Carmina attempt to leave town, Estefania locks Carmina inside and gets into the car with Rosendo to reason with him. The two die in a car accident, seemingly confirming Alfonsina's theory that they were having an affair. A rift divides the families and Elisa and Damián are no longer allowed to play together. Damián is sent to study in Italy. Years later, he returns to La Ermita and reconnects with Elisa and Gael. He and Elisa begin falling in love until his fiancée Florencia arrives in town. Elisa, Damián, Florencia, Paloma, and Gael's romantic lives become entangled. Meanwhile, Carmina manipulates, lies, and murders to make sure her affair with Rosendo remains a secret. El Grupo Antio factory employee Gabino aspires to take over the firm, marry Alfonsina, and keep quiet his defrauding of El Grupo Anito.
