The story takes place in the town of San Benito, near the city of Xalapa, in the beautiful sugarcane fields of the state of Veracruz. Two prominent families live in the area: the Monteros, owners of La Aurora, one of the most important sugar mills in the region, and the Santos, owners of an extensive sugarcane plantation. In the past, Fausto Santos (Leonardo Daniel) and Amador Montero (César Évora) stopped being friends when their love for Margarita Faberman (Felicia Mercado) came between them. Margarita was a beautiful woman who came from Europe with her younger sister, Dinorah (Azela Robinson). Margarita chose Fausto, married him and had a daughter named Julia with him. For his part, Amador ended up marrying Josefina Rosales (Angélica Aragón), the sister of the town's parish priest, Father Refugio (Fernando Balzaretti). Amador and Josefina had a son named Pablo. However, Amador never loved Josefina, a difficult woman. Amador was unfaithful to Josefina and had an affair with a woman named Socorro (Elizabeth Dupeyrón), with whom he fathered a son. Through Josefina's intervention, Socorro fled the town and gave her son to Father Refugio. The child was named Juan de Dios.
