Televisa loves making remakes and producer Nicandro Diaz had eyed an Argentine telenovela called "Herederos De Una Venganza." The executive behind soaps like "Hasta El Fin Del Mundo," "Destilando Amor," "Soy Tu Dueña" and "Mañana Es Para Siempre" had expressed interest in casting Silvia Navarro, Marlene Favela or Leticia Calderón in the villanous role. However, a new report on "Formula Espectacular" cites that Diaz is having second thoughts on adapting this story for Mexican audiences. He says that the main theme is a little too heavy for viewers for the time slot they are proposing. From the official synopsis we read, it deals with Nazis and it's a bit dark.

Antonio decides he will stay in town to solve the crime of his woman and do justice.

What Antonio ignores, and will be discovering with time, is that the town is under the stranglehold of the Lodge of the Inverted Cross, conformed by descendents of Nazi criminals who sought refugee in Vidisterra after World War II and who are convinced that their mission is to protect the town from evil. The mayor, the sheriff, the doctor and the most powerful businessmen in town defend the secret cause; it was them who sacrificed Angie to stop some curse.

During this long path, Antonio will travel in search of the truth, he will meet Mercedes Leiva, and he will fall in love again. Mercedes was unfairly in prison for eight years, convicted for the murder of her husband, and she is liberated the same day Antonio arrives in town. Their desire for justice will join them against Octavio Capogreco, the corrupted mayor of the town, whom they believe is responsible for the death of Angie and Mercedes’s husband.

As love flourishes between them, there is also the impossibility for them to be together because there is a chance that they might be siblings; also, the doctor and the district attorney will do anything to separate them, out of the obsessive love they feel for each of them.

In a state of madness and despair, he nearly eliminates all of them. However, Benicio, a powerful Chilean businessman, frames him for the crime of one of Mercedes cousins.
