Frank is a ruthless Israeli military man. He has dedicated his life to illegal activities all over the world: he was a bodyguard, mercenary, diamond, gold, emerald, guns and drug trafficker, he laundered money, until he finally found a more profitable business and with less risks: organ trafficking. Under his appearance of a prince, there is an authentic demon who only wants to satisfy his thirst for power not caring about other people´s pain.
Sam has that popular beauty of a girl from the “hood”, but her beauty inspires fear and apprehension. She knows how to kill and is loyal to her boss. However, there´s another characteristic that defines her: the love and protection debt she has with her sister Patricia. And this very personal reason is her Achilles heel.
He was a great police officer until his son died and pain took him to drown in alcohol. Because of this, he was expelled from the organization and ended up abandoning the rest of his family. With the help of his only friend, who was also expelled from the Police force, Captain, Enrique Blanco, he started an agency of private detectives and while Pablo went to rehab meetings and investigated minor cases, Enrique investigated the case that ultimately determined his exit from the force: organ trafficking networks. When the investigation started to show results, problems came back to both their lives.
Enrique is a fun and funny man with great convictions. He believes in justice, good intentions, love and truth. He bets his life on these principles. He has never cheated on his wife, not even with his thoughts; he loves her above all things. He is a good friend to his friends and would give up his life for them. Enrique will see his convictions become a reality but he will have to cross a long and tortuous path for it.
Roberto is the second son of a numerous family. He is an arriviste, a social climber and is unscrupulous. Money and social status mean everything to him. He became a doctor, not because of an altruist desire, but because he wanted to be called “doctor”. He lies with an impressive ability. He doesn´t feel guilt or bad about anything he does. He will discover in the most brutal and painful way that he doesn´t belong to the strong group, as he used to think, and he isn´t at the top of the food chain, but he belongs to the weak group. He will know it when he becomes predated.
Ex beauty queen, elegant and restrained. Even though to many people Helena may seem like a woman who settled with her role as a wife, she has a very sharp character that allows her to manipulate situations and people to accommodate to her will. Most of the times she shows herself as a fragile and submissive woman, sometimes she even becomes a victim of people and circumstances, but she uses that to make others take the path she already traced for them. She has a great ability to adapt and when things don´t turn out the way she wanted them, she adapts to every new situation and is able to turn things back in her favor. However, she won´t be able to achieve it this time and circumstances will definitely put her where she belongs.
Gerardo always wanted to be the best. And he was, in everything. Second places don´t exist for him. However, to him, success is not based on titles or wealth but on everything he could do to make the world a better place. And in this aspect, he is extremely altruist. This is why, in his medical work, he reserves a space in the search for talent. As a recruiter, he hunts for doctors with the potential of shining. Therefore, when Daniel shows up in his life, first at the clinic and then as Andrea´s boyfriend, he actually believed he had found the so desired son he never had. The heir to his medical empire. However, things took an unfortunate path…
Ever since she was a little girl, she knew she didn´t want to do the same thing her father did, eminent Dr. Laverde. Therefore, she decided to study arts and after school, she spent eight years studying painting in the most famous art schools of the world: New York, Paris, Belgium and London. After many years living abroad, Andrea comes back to the country and meets Daniel Uribe, one of the most brilliant doctors of her generation and her father´s favorite disciple. At first, it wasn´t more than a simple attraction, but after the constant and repeated refusals of Daniel, conquering became an obsession and she dedicated her life to obtaining what she wanted; not knowing that this relationship would have disastrous consequences, for her and for all the people who surrounded him.
He was taken to an orphanage when he was 9 years old, with his brother Daniel. He escaped some years later and lived on the streets until he found a job in a flower stand, which allowed him to lock himself in to start drinking and reading in order to escape reality. However, books also gave him the desire to write. And he did; he wrote stories and poems for many years. When he was 24, Leonardo moved to Mexico and left everything behind to continue his career as a writer. He published a junior novel and a poem book. However, he was never able to write again. After trying really hard to quit drinking and start writing again, Leonardo finally gave up. His life had lost all meaning and he had decided to commit suicide, when somebody called him from Colombia to let him know that his brother, Daniel, was dead.
His life has been marked by loneliness and abandonment. His mother left him in an orphanage with his older brother, Leonardo, and was soon adopted by a middle class family. He never had any luxuries but he never lacked anything either. His silent and distant behavior turned him into an excellent student and he graduated high school with honors. He enrolled in medical school and specialized in surgery, becoming his parents´ pride. He is an extremely handsome man who always tries to please and receive approval from others using a façade of a happy and willing man, but inside, he is a sad man who feels he doesn’t deserve to be loved.
