The story deals with the lives of five young friends, Brenda, Olivia, Violeta, Renata and Pamela, who live in the fictional Colombian town of "El Carmen." Throughout the series, they become further and further embroiled in inextricable situations because of their involvement with drug king-pin, Braulio Bermudez, his family and his lieutenants. Bermudez, played by the veteran Colombian actor, Fernando Solórzano, is a "capo" operating out of "El Carmen."
Pamela immigrates to the United States of America to try to get away from trouble and be near her father, who was a pilot and ended up in prison because he was captured by the DEA taking flying cocaine to the United States. She ends up as a maid but tells Brenda she is happy and having a great life.
Olivia ends up in getting eight years in jail, for having a fake wedding with the notorious Braulio Bermudez, and acquiring some of his property.
Violeta dies when, after Braulio's, now led by Norman since Braulio is in jail, local cartel decides to have a treaty with Nicanor’s cartel.
Renata also dies because, to repay money she owed him, Erick, a former henchman of Braulio, forces her to carry drugs to the United States in her stomach. None of her loved ones ever find out about her death because she has no identification on her person.
Brenda ends up carrying Braulio's child, but he is captured, extradited and sent to a US prison, so that she never sees him again.
