Plot[edit]

Dulce Amargo focuses on five couples and their daily struggles. The main couple are Mariana and Nicholas, who are about to celebrate their seven year anniversary. Mariana, overwhelmed by the concern that she can develop a hereditary mental illness, decides to leave her husband and son to make them avoid the pain of seeing her suffering. But soon after, she will be unwittingly captivated by a new passion, and behind this romance will hide the madness of a psychopath. Nicholas and Mariana's friends try to help, but they must first resolve their own conflicts, including infidelity, jealousy, ambition, and addiction.

Dulce Amargo is a contemporary love story, full of suspense and excitement, in which the fall in love, as in real life, can be bitter sweet.
