Synopsis | Cast |
Cristina is a young girl
whose sweet disposition endears her to everyone at "El Platanal", her
father's beautiful hacienda. Her father, Don Severiano Alvarez, is a
rugged, on-willed rancher. His foreman, Diego Hernandez, is a strong,
handsome, young man who is madly in love with Cristina. One day, she
surrenders herself, body and soul, to his passion. Shortly thereafter,
Cristina admits to her father that she is pregnant with Diego's child.
Severiano banishes her to the city with her servant, Raquela. Federico
Rivera, a cruel and greedy neighbor, takes advantage of this situation and
arranges for the baby, Maria del Carmen, to be brought to his hacienda
instead. In order to be close to her daughter, Cristina is forced to marry
Federico and pass as Maria del Carmen's "godmother". Federico causes an
accident that leaves Cristina blind, and takes possession of her
fortune. Years go by and Maria del Carmen is now a beautiful young girl.
Cristina has taken pains to provide her with a good education and everyone
at the hacienda loves her, specially Jose Maria, a lovely ranch hand.
Believing she is Raquela's daughter, he dreams of one day marrying her.
The arrival of Federico's nephew brings him great joy. Carlos Manuel is
now a handsome young doctor who has recently completed his studies abroad.
Carlos Manuel falls in love with Deborah Falcon, not realizing that she is
his uncle's lover. When Federico finds out about their relationship, he
looks for the way to drive them apart. Maria del Carmen falls in love with
Carlos Manuel from the moment they meet. When Carlos Manuel begins to
respond to her tentative overtures, Deborah intervenes and manages to
separate them, but for all her scheming , she as well as Federico are
unable to kill the budding romance between the young lovers...
