Marielena was a tremendous success of La virgen de los cerros, adapted by Manuel Muñoz Rico and Ligia Lezama. It was the novel that the Conchita / Simancas couple consecrated.  
Marielena was a poor girl who suffers the trauma of being the victim of an injury that marked her life. Fate leads Marielena to meet Daniel,  young, healthy and from a very rich family. Daniel falls in love with her and love grows between them until Marielena discovers that Daniel is the brother of the one who was her perpetrator.
Marielena denounces them both but Daniel turns out to be innocent. Marielena marries Daniel but the marriage is short lived and it is not until after Marielena undergoes therapy with a psychiatrist that she can free herself from the past and thus try to rebuild her life.
