Tormenta en el paraíso (English: Storm in Paradise) is a telenovela from Televisa produced by Juan Osorio. It premiered on November 12, 2007 on El Canal de las Estrellas and September 7, 2008 on Univision.
In 1519 a Mayan priest, Ahzac, discovers that his daughter Ixmy has fallen in love with a white foreigner. He plans to sacrifice her as a gift to the gods, along with items made of gold and a black pearl. Ixmy avoids her fate, and Ahzac curses the black pearl: "Whoever has this pearl in their possession will never be able to know what happiness is!"
In 1987, Eliseo Bravo (Alejandro Tommasi) and Hernán Lazcano (René Strickler) explore the coral reefs of Cozumel and discover the black pearl. When Hernán touches the pearl, Ahzac's curse takes effect. Eliseo's greed leads to Hernán's death, leaving his wife Analy (Eugenia Cauduro) to raise their newborn daughter Aymar alone.
Nineteen years later, Aymar Lazcano (Sara Maldonado) is a beautiful young woman. After her mother is murdered by a jealous suitor when Aymar rejects him, she lives with family friend Pablo Solis (Manuel Ojeda). She meets Nicolás Bravo (Erick Elías), Eliseo's son, and they fall in love.
Avaricious Maura Duran (Mariana Seoane) meets the main characters in the guise of Karina Rosemberg, a rich heiress whose land Eliseo covets. Manipulated by Maura, Eliseo detests Aymar and her relationship with his son and Maura falls in love with Eliseo's oldest son David (José Luis Reséndez).
The real Karina Rosemberg (Ingrid Martz) is in a mental hospital under the care of Aymar, who found her wandering the streets destitute. Karina had met David and fallen in love with him, despite his drunkenness at the time, but he does not reciprocate her feelings because he is infatuated with Maura. Maura's attempts to separate Aymar and Nicolás include a fake pregnancy (with Nicolás the alleged father), an attempted murder and the killing of Nicolás' youngest brother, Leonardo.
At the end of the series, Maura is stung by a swarm of bees and dies of anaphylactic shock. David and Karina and Aymar and Nicolás marry, and both couples are happy Nocolás and Aymar with their son Hernán Nicolas jr and their nephew Leonardo and Karina and David with their son Elisèo David.
