Christian Bach, Alfredo Adame and Saúl Lisazo starred as protagonists, while Carlos Cámara, Roberto Blandón and Nuria Bages starred as antagonists.



Irene Saldívar is a young woman, beautiful and rich, who suffers a great emotional shock after the death of her father and brother. When she recovers, Irene travels to Greece with her beloved nanny, Rosario, to free herself from bad memories. During her trip, the young woman meets Alexis Teodorakis, a wealthy Greek businessman with whom she falls madly in love. Both decide to get married without knowing that Carlos Gorostiaga, the administrator of Irene's fortune, has other plans for them.

Carlos, who was always in charge of the finances of the late Melchor Saldívar, Irene's father, is now in charge of directing the fortune of the young woman, who considers him an honest and trustworthy man. But the reality is different since Carlos is an ambitious and unscrupulous man who pretends to be a good person before his wife, Luciana Mendoza, and Irene herself. However, Carlos works in the company of Alejandro Roldán; the two seduce rich women and then kill them and keep their money.

Alejandro is as mean as Carlos; He lives in Morelia with his wife, Laura Limantur, who loves him obsessively and who is also complicit in her husband's crimes. Ramiro also lives with them their son, who is completely unaware of his parents' activities. Ramiro always regrets the absence of his father and whoever wants to control his future because his father wants to force him to work with him in family businesses when he wants to be a musician.

Carlos and Alejandro plan the death of Alexis so that Alejandro later falls in love with Irene. Their filthy purposes pay off when Alexis dies in an explosion on his yacht. Irene, who has become pregnant with Alexis's baby, returns heartbroken to Mexico, and there she receives the help of Diego Covarrubias, the doctor who treated her father and brother when they died. They both fall in love, but new obstacles appear: Estelita, Diego's sickly daughter, is too attached to the memory of her late mother Magdalena and refuses to let another woman take her place. In addition, Irene discovers that her friend Carolina has always been in love with Diego and decides to move away to leave her place for her friend since Carolina is ill with cancer and her diagnosis is short-lived.

Meanwhile, Alejandro has become obsessed with Irene; failing to earn her love, he decides to blackmail her by threatening to take away her son if she does not agree to marry him.
