Mundo de Fieras tells the story of the consequences of the irresponsible parenthood of Leoncio Palacios who abandoned his wife and young daughter in the countryside to run off with another woman, Miriam Palacios. Charito Flores, his daughter, develops into a young beautiful woman forced to live in an inhospitable world which molds her into a charming and aggressive survivor. Once her mother dies, Charito gets a job at Leoncio's house where he is gravely ill. Before dying, he asks Charito to forgive him for abandoning them many years ago. During this time, Charito falls in live with Jose Manuel Bustamante who awakens in her the deepest feelings.
