A courageous farm girl's life is changed forever when she falls in love with a charming street musician, opening her eyes to the cruel mistreatment of Mexico's mine workers and compelling her to stand with them against their oppressor — the man she is marrying.
Esperanza lives a charmed life. The daughter of a wealthy landowner, her family is thrilled when she attracts the attentions of the handsome and mysterious Don Raúl, opening the door to a glittering life of opulence for them all.
However, a chance encounter with a charming street musician forces Esperanza to open her eyes to the cruel underworld of Mexico’s mistreated working classes, and she begins to doubt everything she ever thought she wanted.
As the people begin to rise up in a bloodthirsty revolution against their oppressors, Esperanza is forced to make choices that she hoped never to face. Esperanza’s decisions threaten to tear apart her family, her heart, and the country she loves.
In this brutal world where a few careless words can cost lives, will the price of freedom prove to be more than what she is willing to pay?
