It was rebroadcast in late 2011 through April 2012 on Univision's sister network, Telefutura. It was filmed in Miami, Florida (USA), and lasted about 187 episodes. It is the second long-running telenovela that Venevisión Productions has produced without its former co-producer Fonovideo. Acorralada is the theme and another notable song "Eres Tu" written by Angel Arce and Jossel Calveiro.

It began airing in Venezuela on December 10, 2008 in the 11 pm timeslot on Venevisión and finished on July 25, 2009 with seven months of airing and being the most successful telenovela for its timeslot since La Fea Más Bella.

Venevision International released Acorralada on DVD in the United States on December 2, 2008, a week before its debut on Venezuelan television. The DVD set consists of three discs, and has a running time of 596 minutes. The show is heavily edited in order to fit into three discs. Neither Venevision nor Univision have plans to offer a more complete version.

The show has been broadcased in more than 50 countries.[1]

An ambitious and ruthless woman named Octavia Alarcón (Frances Ondiviela), out of sheer envy, snatched away everything she had.

Octavia's husband murdered the of husband Fedora and got Fedora to appear as the culprit of that murder. Octavia snatched her perfume factory, her fortune and snatched her daughters leaving Fedora locked in prison for that murder she did not commit.

The daughters of Fedora were given to an older woman who raised them by making them believe that they were her granddaughters by naming them Diana and Gaby. Octavia and her family, the Irazabal, became a rich and powerful family thanks to what Octavia stole from Fedora.

Years later Fedora is released by a pardon and begins to work like singer under the nickname of "La Gaviota", but with the idea to recover what they snatched away from her and get revenge on the Irazabal family.

Meanwhile, the daughters of Fedora, Diana (Alejandra Lazcano) and Gaby (Mariana Torres), who have grown up humbly with their adoptive grandmother, come to work at Octavia's house.
