Everything begins a little over twenty years ago, when Maria Herrera, a young woman with limited resources, falls deeply in love with Eduardo Sanint, a man with a good economic position, married, and a heir to a real estate business. A deep and intense love grows between Maria and Eduardo, but that feeling is not enough for him to decide to abandon his family and stay with her. Marias heart doesnt resist this frustration: the small Renata, Marias daughter from a previous partner, will have to go through the horror of finding her lifeless at home.
Two decades later, the same Renata Medina, who became a strong, sensual, beautiful woman, decides to end so many years of suffering and maternal absence she will claim justice using her beauty and wit as her weapons. With a little of both, she begins to work for Eduardo, the man that brought so much pain to her mother. And, from there on, she will advance in a vendetta to get revenge.
Renata was educated by Gracia, her grandmother, within hate and resentment. Both were convinced that Eduardo abandoned Maria knowing that she was expecting his child. This supposed abandonment does nothing but make Renatas hate towards Eduardo grow. But the young woman doesnt consider an obstacle that can ruin her plan on her first day at Sanint Constructors she will meet Esteban, the love of her life, nonetheless Eduardos child, the man she hates so much.
Renata, from the beginning, will try to keep distance from Esteban because his presence marks the end of her vendetta, especially because he also falls in love with her from the first instance. And Renata promised the Virgin in front of her mothers grave that she would carry out her vengeance, which gives it almost a sacred character to her. However, little by little she will give in to that feeling that, throughout the story, will make her choose between love and hate. The great mystery will be, then, to figure out which of the two feelings will define Renatas destiny. But this wont be the only problem that she has to deal with. The path of hate will lead her from complication to complication, and will show her that killing is not that difficult, that it is actually, the simplest choice.
From there, the plot will turn darker, with suspense, and sometimes police moments. Sometimes she will have no other option than to eliminate those who represent a threat to her plans. Other times she will opt to come out gracefully, with less violent tricks, but likewise heartless. And everything will be in the name of the promise made.

Maria Herrera’s mother and Renata Medina’s grandmother. For years she planted in Renata the hate towards Eduardo Sanint for her daughter Maria’s suicide, without knowing that this would return disgrace to her home, because now she can’t avoid her granddaughter from getting revenge from the man that she sees as her mother’s executioner. Gracia practices witchcraft to look for help from the beyond to protect her granddaughter and also to hurt her enemies. She is a bitter woman who deep in her heart feels that she led her daughter to her death by forcing her to be with a married man in order to improve their economic situation.
She has been Eduardo’s loyal partner for almost 30 years. Even in the moments of marital crisis in which she suspected that there was another woman, she stood firmly in order to maintain her family. She stopped practicing her profession as an architect to dedicate exclusively to her family and her son. After the arrival of Renata, she begins to perceive an attitude in her husband, similar to the one he had 20 years ago, that is useful to sense that he is unfaithful. For this reason, she does whatever she can to not let him be taken away. She plans trips abroad, gives him his space, and tries to understand her husband, but everything seems useless when confronting a woman like Renata.
Eduardo Sanint’s son. He studied abroad and comes back decided to show his father that he is sufficiently able to handle the future of Sanint Constructors. He assumes the business contrary to his father’s ways: he likes to risk a lot, but is effective. Eduardo is not very fond of this, he thinks that in any moment he can risk many years of hard work. A fan of motorcycles and a helpless womanizer. His image as a flirt is well known in the office, but everything changes when Renata Herrera begins to work. He feels that she is the woman that he has wanted to be with and falls in love, risking a relationship of many years with Martina, his steady girlfriend.
Esteban Sanint’s father. He is a responsible man who is loved by his family and employees. He once had an affair with Maria Herrera, Renata Medina’s mother. Despite the love that he had for this woman he decided to leave her to not hurt his wife Annie and his son Esteban. Besides, that relationship didn’t have his father’s approval, who saw Maria as a low-class woman that wasn’t worthy of belonging to the Sanint family. Everything seems like happiness in the life of this architect, who, 20 years after his slip, meets Renata, without knowing that she is Maria’s daughter. He opens the door to his company to her and falls in love with her without knowing that she is there to get revenge for her mother’s death. His attraction towards Renata makes him relive the feeling that his family life is headed downwards and tries to do everything to avoid her, but this time it will be impossible to resist. Without knowing, father and son will fight for the same woman, who will turn into a misfortune for both of them.
