Based on true events. Amparo has abandoned the convent she was living in and goes to the marginal suburb where her sister lives. However, her violent and fiend cousin Libardo forces her to live under his roof, and she will soon realize that he is nothing else but a cruel animal. Trapped in that place with her baby, she cannot escape, since even the inhabitants of the suburbs are afraid of the animal, and do not dare to help her. She will eventually see herself transformed into the spouse of the animal, forced to serve him and suffer the constant abuses of Libardo. Seeing herself unable to escape from that ambience of horrors that her mother lived before her, and refusing to also accept that fate for her baby, she will try to survive thanks to the greatest value that she has left: love.
