They were deeply in love, but when Raimundo's parents threatened to ruin Francisca's live if she married their son, Raimundo had no other option but to leave Francisca, telling her he never loved her.

Years later, Emilia and Alfonso adopt a troubled teenaged boy named Matìas (Ivàn Montes), whose father and brothers force him to steal. Later Maria returns to save her mother from the emotional blackmail of Severyano who wants her family's property.
