Mujeres engañadas tells the story of four couples that live in the same building, within which lies and infidelity are the principal relationship and family problems that confront those involved.

The first couple, the protagonists, are Yolanda and Javier Duarte (Laura León and Andrés García). Yolanda is a woman of humble origins who married Javier, a rich man who has two teenage daughters, María Rosa (Marisol Mijares) and Jessica (Anahí).

The second couple is composed of Diana and Alejandro Lizárraga (Sabine Moussier and Arturo Peniche). Diana is a vain and selfish woman who is obsessed with finding the secret of eternal youth. Alejandro, on the other hand, is a decent and honest man who dreams of having a child with his wife.

Paola Montero (Michelle Vieth) and César Martínez (Kuno Becker) are a young couple. Paola is very religious and lives in Veracruz, while her beloved is an attractive young man whose greatest pleasure is to conquer women.

The fourth couple is Cecilia and Jorge Martínez (Elsa Aguirre and Eric del Castillo), César's parents, who have been married for thirty years and whose relationship has fallen into routine.
