Plot edit

It is the dawn of the 20th century that ushers the years of wonder over new discoveries, inventions and the First World War. During this time, Isabel Sarmiento falls in love with Camilo Rivera and gives herself to him, not knowing that Saúl Bejarano a primitive landowner with power, had already decided to marry her.[4] The girl must sacrifice her love, bound by a family debt and Saúl's threats, as he had witnessed a murder committed by Isabel's father.

She agrees to be Saúl's wife. She has no other option: she fears her family's ruin, jail for her father and knows that her lover's life is in danger. Camilo leaves as soon as the wedding is held, believing he has lost Isabel forever.

Important events that would change everyone's life, begin to unravel. The lovers must overcome many barriers to find ultimate happiness.[5][6]
