In the "San Joaquin" ranch, located in the village of San Miguel Allende, millionaire dies Solis Don Alberto Duarte, owner of a large fortune and a prosperous farm where horses are bred thoroughbred. Its closest relative is his niece, Florence, who will marry his ambitious promises, Leonardo. This is the promise very happy thinking that his future wife will own a fortune, but, to his horror, Florencia will inherit only a small part of the money; the rest of the fortune of Don Alberto and the estate will pass into the hands of a stranger from Madrid, Alberto Salerno.

Homero,uncle of Leonardo interested as he performs plans for Alberto is arrested for drug trafficking on the way to Mexico. Meanwhile, Leonardo married Florencia and encouraged to contest the will due to the absence of the primary heir, and so she becomes mistress of everything but name only. However, almost a year later, Alberto escapes from prison during a fire and heads to San Miguel Allende with the idea of revenge in mind.

His prime suspect is obviously Florencia, for she knew he was on his way and also had reason to remove it. Alberto, who was police, begins his investigation. The name of Marcos gets, and gets a job as a laborer on the farm that is technically theirs. Florencia, trapped in a marriage that has not been consummated, is attracted to the new worker.
