Synopsis edit

María is a hard-working and honest young woman who provides her services at a pharmaceutical company called Balmori Laboratories. Unfortunately, she is forced to quit her job because her boss, Adolfo Klein, attempted to rape her.

After the incident, María gets a job at the prestigious factory of Jaime Dumas, a businessman connected to the mafia. He is Adolfo's relative and partner. When Jaime's father died he left his entire inheritance to his wife Sara and she left Jaime in charge to take care of the factory, since he is the eldest son.

Alicia, Jaime's sister, is Adolfo's wife. Rebeca is Jaime's wife, and when she finds out that Adolfo tried to rape María, a terrible scandal is created around the family.

Jaime meets María and tries to seduce her. Luckily, María meets Gerardo, an environmentalist who is investigating, gathering evidence, and fighting against Jaime Dumas and his factory, since it distributes prohibited substances and illegal pesticides. María and Gerardo fall in love, but many circumstances separate them.
