Everardo Rey is a powerful businessman who leads the Rey Industrial Group in Mexico. He has three sons: Everardo "Vado", Guillermo and Matías. His wife is Manuela San Vicente.

Behind their image of wealth, there is a story of betrayal and deceit, meticulously planned by Everardo Rey, a man who grew up with Pedro Malvido, his best friend. Both were poor and in their desire to improve their quality of life, they sought the American Dream. In the US, they agree to forget Manuela San Vicente, a high class girl they both loved. Several years later, having made their fortunes, Everardo and Pedro return to Mexico to start a glass collection business. However, Everardo Rey breaks his agreement with Pedro and marries Manuela.

Ruined, Pedro discovers fraud, as well as his friend's betrayal. With his family, Pedro Luis tries to start over again, but he is always waiting for a chance to take revenge on Everardo Rey. Meanwhile, a deep and real love is born between Pedro's daughter Lorenza Malvido and Matías Rey, who try to ease the hatred between their families in order to be happy together in peace.
