PlotEdit

The Montes de Oca is a very rich family made up of two sisters, Matilde and Blanca Flor, and their cousin, Rodrigo. A love triangle occurs, since Matilde is in love with her cousin, but he prefers her sister. However, Blanca Flor loves a modest fisherman, Enrique San Román. When Rodrigo finds out, he falsely accuses Enrique of robbery to send him to jail; shortly after, he discovers that Blanca Flor is expecting a son from Enrique and decides to wait for the child to be born before making him disappear. In turn, Matilde, who hates her sister, tells her that her son died shortly after his birth. Shocked by the news, Blanca Flor goes crazy and Matilde locks her in a basement and makes everyone believe that she died.

Rodrigo gives the baby to the family maid, Soledad, so that she can deliver it to an orphanage, but she decides to save him and takes him to his father's friend's house, who adopts him and calls him Alejandro. After the alleged death of Blanca Flor, Rodrigo made a long trip to Europe, from which he returned married to a young aristocrat, Constanza Mendoza, already pregnant at the time. Blinded by her obsessive love, Matilde slowly poisoned Rodrigo's wife until she died shortly after giving birth to their daughter, Ana Cristina. Later, Alejandro's adoptive mother marries a very wealthy man who adopts the boy and gives him his last name, Aldama. Enrique is dying in prison, but before dying he asks to see his son and swears that he will take revenge on the Montes de Oca. Later the family goes to Europe, where Alejandro grows up knowing the history of his true parents very well.

As an adult, Alejandro is back in Mexico with the purpose of taking revenge on Rodrigo and his entire family. On the trip, Alejandro meets Ana Cristina without knowing that she is the daughter of Rodrigo, the man who destroyed his parents. When Alejandro discovers Ana Cristina's last name, he immediately understands who she is, but not only does he not stop loving her, but both swear that they will marry in Mexico. However, the situation is complicated for both of them.
