Raimundo, a wealthy man, died of a heart attack. The notary reads out Raimundo's will, leaving all his estate and companies to the widow, Luz, with the surprising clause that she will remain without a man for the period of two years, during which his trusted attorney, Arturo, will be in possession of the whole patrimony. Luz being much younger than her late husband, resents this clause that will keep her captive of the dead man for so long. Her attempts to seek release in the night spots of the town do not prove satisfying. Lucia, the maid, starts an extortion scheme against the widow, menacing to denounce the murder of Raimundo with venom, as Luz and Arturo were lovers. The faithful cook and the gardener are dismissed and Lucía literally takes her employer's image, clothes, and manners - forcing Luz to play humbly to her (progressively insane) demands. The police accepts the accusation of murder made by Arturo against the maid, she is arrested, and Arturo marries Luz. So, crime does ... Written by Artemis-9

When servants misbehave...
5 November 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

In this story we are introduced to an attractive young widow whose millionaire husband has just passed away. This widow has been left with a large mansion and servants under her care.

One nosy servant girl (played extremely well by Julissa in the role of a sadistic character) has been harboring suspicions about the husband's untimely demise. The servant girl causes all kinds of trouble for the widow, starting with blackmail. But it gets even worse!

To further complicate things, there is a handsome new suitor on the scene making moves on the widow. The servant girl also likes him. The situation becomes crazy as we don't know how far each person is willing to go. And which woman will the suitor end up with?
