It begun in the middle 30`s in a town nearby Bogotá, Colombia. Tomás Manrique, his wife Josefina and his little son Pedro, had to take a train and leave that town as soon as a war conflict started in the area. When they arrived to Bogotá, a man called Pascual became their friend, and got a hotel for them. But when Tomas found it out, and went to reclaim his money, Pascual introduce him into a easy-life world, into dirty businesses and crime. In that exactly moment, Tomas damned the whole 5 next generations of the Manrique family. He damned them to suffer and made their lives al hell. Ten years later, Pedro met Marlene, a nurse, and fell in love whit her. Pascual was having money than him, so he killed him. Pedro found this out, and killed Pascual the day of hisown wedding whith Marlene. But before Pascual died, he said: "I curse you, Pedro Manrique. I curse you, and your sons, and the sonss of your sons. All their lives will be a such a hell, than the only rest they`ll have, will be death". With the help of a medium called Magnolia, Pedro found out out that in a far future, his sons Armando and Antonio would haveserius troubles and that one would kill the other. So Pedro knew that the only way to save his faamily from the curse, was love. The next generations, in 1970`s, 80`s, 2000, 2005 and 2006, had a very sad history: betrayals, loves, murders, and most of all, all the stories involved with dirty businesses. The Manrique`: a family damned to suffer.
