Demetrio Azunsolo arrives in a small remote village in Jalisco where his beloved half-brother, Ricardo Platas, used to live and run a tequila plantation, only to find out that the latter has just committed suicide, after being betrayed by a selfish, greedy woman.

Little by little, and thanks to the village inhabitants - who at first are hostile towards him but then become his friends - Demetrio puts together the pieces of the puzzle that led to the tragedy.

The clues bring him to Mexico City, in the villa of a wealthy family, the Fernandez-Negrete's who are the owners of the FERNE Bank, one of the most important banks in Mexico, where Ricardo had spent some time in the past as a trusted worker.

According to the info he has in hand, in that house lives the woman who is the cause of Ricardo's suicide. Demetrio meets two young women there, both nieces of the family: the innocent and fragile Virginia Fernandez-Negrete and the dynamic and self-confident Verónica Fernandez-Negrete.

Not sure who of them is the guilty one, Demetrio gets trapped in a series of co-incidences and sly gossip and ends up believing in the end that the woman he is looking for is Verónica.

Once ascertained, he puts to practice his plan for revenge. He flirts with Verónica, seduces her and makes her fall in love with him so as to marry him. After the wedding, he practically abducts her and brings her to the small remote village where Ricardo ended his life, decides to make her life a misery and take revenge for his brother's death.

Little does he know that he, as well as Verónica, are in fact victims of someone whose angel face hides a demonic soul and who actually was the one responsible for Ricardo's suicide.

When he finds out, it seems that all is lost as Verónica abandons him because he doesn't trust her and instead has been taken in by gossip and deception; so he must struggle to regain her love. In the end, love wins, but not without cost.
