After a long absence, Octavio Villarreal (César Évora) returns to Guanajuato in order to see his uncle Fernando (Joaquín Cordero), who is on his deathbed.

Octavio always considered his uncle to be like a father until Fernando prevented him from marrying Frida (Sabine Moussier). Since that day Octavio has only felt resentment towards Fernando. Octavio heads for the Villarreal mansion in his car with Marcial (Alberto Estrella), a trusted employee of Fernando, when they are intercepted by a girl on a horse.

Octavio is taken with the young woman's beauty, but the contemptuous Marcial tells him that Ana Cristina (Susana González) is Fernando's lover. This is a lie, however; Fernando has only protected the girl who lives on the Villarreal grounds with her supposed grandfather, Manuel (Miguel Corcega).

Fernando dies in Ana Cristina's arms, confessing to her that the love of his life was a woman named Leonela. Upon seeing his uncle's body, Octavio remembers the love they had and takes out his pain and frustration on Ana Cristina, calling her a whore.

However, Fernando's will stipulates that his nephew and his protégée will inherit his shoe factory, but only if they marry and live together for a year. The corrupt Marcial goes to Miami to find the ambitious Frida, who renews her relationship with Octavio even though he has married Ana Cristina.

Marcial and Frida want to take over the factory and conspire so that this marriage does not last any longer than necessary, sowing doubts in Octavio's heart about the purity and good intentions of his wife. Although Octavio loves Ana Cristina, his doubts lead him to abandon her and go to Miami with Frida.

From there he returns in the company of the businessman Rogelio Valencia, a man who has a lot to do with the now-pregnant Ana Cristina's past. Frida, also, is pregnant, and Octavio finds himself trapped between his love for his wife and his obligation to the child that Frida carries.[2]
