PlotEdit

The story begins in 1916, with the Mexican Revolution seemingly coming to an end. General Eduardo Álvarez and his family are waiting for the train at the station and there they meet Manuel Fortuna, a young railroad employee who will come to have a significant role in their lives. Miguel falls in love with Andrea, the eldest daughter of the general, but a great gulf separates them.
