Broken Angel is the story of Santa Martínez, who seeks vengeance after her husband is murdered. She infiltrates the Cano family by marrying Humberto Cano. Unexpectedly, Santa falls in love with Santiago Cano, Humberto's younger brother.

What is Broken Angel's full story?

A couple's life turns ugly when a promising job opportunity leads to unfortunate events. Humberto Cano hires Willy Delgado as a piano teacher for his niece Daniela Millan. Daniela's mother, Bárbara Cano, makes romantic gestures towards Willy, who turns her down. He also discovers that Daniela has a drug problem. To protect their secrets, the mother and daughter accuse him of harassment and molestation.

Humberto, known for being a savage attorney, drags Delgado to court to answer for his crimes. In an unforeseen move, Daniela's father, George, reveals he has footage that could exonerate Willy.
