“Corazon Apasionado” chronicles the life of Patricia (Marlene Favela), a young and beautiful girl who is completely in-love with her boyfriend Marcos Perez (Jose Guillermo Cortines). But it is a clandestine love since her stern grandmother, Doña Ursula (Susana Dosamantes), would never accept that fact that her favorite granddaughter is infatuated with a mere worker at the hacienda she manages with an iron hand. The young loving couple attempts to escape unaware that Patricia’s father, Bruno Montesinos (Marcelo Buquet), plans to sell her to cover a gambling debt. On a fateful night, events unfold that affect them all: Marcos is badly wounded trying to save his beloved, while Bruno is imprisoned for his actions.
Two years later, Patricia, having given up on love and dedicated to her work, takes the reins of the ranch ‘La Generala’ along with his grandmother, Doña Ursula. Unexpectedly, Armando Marcano (Guy Ecker), son of a domestic employee of the hacienda, arrives at the ranch; an agricultural engineer, he fast becomes foreman. Immediately, there are clashes between Patricia and Armando; and among the quarrels and emotional confrontations emerges the flame of an uncontrollable love that strikes them with great force. Also arriving at the ranch is Fedora (Jessica Mas), a cousin of Patricia who ws Armando’s former lover, and the rivalry between the two women for the love of the same man ignites the souls of these three characters.
Patricia and Armando struggle and face a thousand obstacles in search for the joy they so longed for; and when everything seems to indicate that nothing, nor anyone else, can no longer come between them, a ghost from the past returns, someone forgotten who comes to claim what is his. Before them appears Marcos Perez, who everyone, including Patricia, believed to be dead. Now, all the cards are on the table and the future of Patricia and Armando becomes uncertain, gloomy. Only the power of love can save them now.
