Lady Altagracia is a story of revenge, betrayal and ambition, but also of redemption, justice and love, which follows the life of Altagracia, who lost her parents to a fatal car accident, and who at a young age suffered the abuse of a group of young men. Since then, Altagracia becomes a ruthless and ambitious woman, an unfeeling mother who abandoned her daughter at a young age and uses her charms to amass an empire that allows her to impose law and take justice into her own hands. Despite her considerable success, Altagracia is missing something: love. And, she discovers it for the first time when she meets Saul, an attorney who defends the victims of gender violence. But Saul has already captivated Monica, Altagracia’s estranged daughter. This cold woman will now be cornered by two feelings she had previously avoided: love for her daughter and love for a man.
