Alejandro Méndez is a very successful man, happily married to Isabel, whom he adores. He is the father of two grown children, Pablo and Helena.

Between the ranch and a real estate business he owns in the capital city, Alejandro and his family are to enjoy a very affluent standard of living.

Success can also breed enemies and Alejandro's life changes drastically when Isabel dies suddenly under dubious circumstances. Alejandro falls into a terrible depression and abandons all interest in life, his ranch and the people he loves.

Diana is a beautiful and strong young veterinarian who, at the beginning of this story, meets Pablo at a nightclub and turns him down due to his rich-boy attitude, arrogance and overbearing. Pablo is obsessed with her end once Diana is hired to work on the Méndez's ranch, he will try to seduce her by any means necessary.

She will seek Alejandro and with strength and courage will urge him to pull out of his depression because his family needs him.

Pablo threatens to take his own life and manipulates the situation to take up all of Diana's attention. She feels imprisoned by the turn of events and Alejandro feels terribly guilty so he falls back to avoid hurting his son. Meanwhile, Milciades and Déborah conspire together to sat a trap that will lead to much disturb between Diana and Alejandro, causing a confrontation between the two.
