THE STORYTHE PAST
Our story is built up in accordance with the traditional telenovela structure, with a modern aesthetics and characters with dramatic strength, set in a geography of deep social and cultural contrasts.
Our setting is a troubled and threatening world, consisting of a poor outlying neighbourhood, a high financial organization and its guru, an institution for blind people, and high ranking clergy.
Sayen is a very attractive and witty young girl, who is starting to step up the social ladder all by herself, encouraged by the protection Ramiro Falcón offers her, after becoming his partenaire in virtual sex games. They both somehow avoid any direct contact, Ramiro due to his perversion, and Sayen because she is secretly waiting for a great love.
Our story begins when Sayen meets Elías.
Elías is a secretive young man, marked by a fracture in his identity: he does not know who his father is. He was raised by his mother Delfina, who lives in an institution for blind people, after having gone blind in a mysterious past incident.
Then, one day Elías urges his mother to tell him the truth about his identity. Seeing her son’s determination and despair, the woman tells him to contact Ramiro Falcón, a sort of guru who has influential contacts within the finance world, also an economic benefactor of the institution where they live. In light of this new turn of events, Elías sets out to meet Ramiro Falcón.
It is at this critical point in his life when he meets Sayen and feels strongly and instantly attracted to her. The two of them are united, feeling they are destined to love each other.
Of course Elías is completely unaware of Sayen’s secret relationship with Falcón, a cold and attractively distant individual. Elías becomes Ramiro’s protégé, and he also helps Elías with his career.
Elías develops an ardent and almost obsessive relationship with Sayen, which will reach its peak when he finds out she is Falcon’s sexual partenaire, whom he believes to be his father. Elías is deeply shocked and starts despising Sayen and seeing her as a forbidden woman.
When Ramiro Falcón finds out about their relationship, he lies to Elías, assuring him he is his father. Through manipulation, he succeeds in keeping him away from Sayen.
Sayen is unable to leave Elías and gradually goes down into her own hell. Consumed by passion, Sayen decides to take her revenge on Ramiro Falcón, revealing every secret she kept from their relationship.
Elías does not know that Sayen, who loves him deeply, will eventually lead him to his true identity.
In order to put an end to Sayen’s retaliation, Falcón is forced to go through his concealed past, which involves Delfina and Ezequiel. Ezequiel, now a priest, is Ramiro’s brother and Elías’ real father. Ezequiel has always been a father figure to Sayen.
Without actually intending it, Sayen and Elías bring the past into the present, and manage to reconstruct the secret story that brought the Falcón brothers into rivalry. The path towards the conflict’s solution strengthens the passion between the protagonists.
In the end, neither Sayen nor Elías will be the same. He must rescue her and offer her proof of his love. A love that has changed him and given him self-awareness: his story and his identity.
Every love has its origin. The passion between Sayen and Elías was born out of the pain, suffering and despair undergone by three lost souls who will only rest when the young lovers absolve them as their love transcends.
