Produced by Carlos Bardasano (La Mujer del Diablo [The Devil’s Woman], Si Nos Dejan [If They Let Us], Como Tu No Hay Dos [No One Like You], Rubi [Ruby), the story revolves around Mariana (Claudia Martín), a humble and feisty young woman who after being left alone and helpless in the world arrives by fate to the life of Don Alberto Salvatierra (Guillermo García Cantú), a business magnate and one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the country.
Mariana will meet the son of the tycoon and one of the most sought-after, Luis Alberto Salvatierra (Sebastián Rulli), who lives his own drama, but seduced by the charism and authenticity of Mariana, he will find the purest love.
What Mariana and Luis Alberto count on is that be together they will have to face Soraya Montenegro (Fabiola Guajardo), an unscrupulous woman who, blinded by hatred and jealousy, will do the unthinkable to separate them.
Recognized internationally as one of the most iconic dramatic works of all time, Los ricos también lloran is the story of a love that, although it goes beyond class distinction and social prejudices, it is marked by tragedy, jealousy, lies and even death.
