(5 votes)

Imperio de Cristal telenovela Sofia Vidal, her husband Uriel and Katia, their little daughter, attend the great party offered at the elegant mansion of the Lombardo Family, the powerful crystal entrepreneurs. After this, their life will never be the same. Don Cesar, the patriarch of the Lombardos, discovers in Sophia the daughter of his impossible love. Elena, who died tragically in an accident, when Sophia was still a child. Cesar, without Sophia knowing it, decides to protect her because of Elena's memory, which he cherishes still.

Cesar is married in second nuptials to Livia Arizmedi, a former actress who dreams on recovering her career. Sofia's appearance seriously worries Livia, considering her an intruder who could displace her, just as Elena would have done in the past. Livia, who hides a terrible secret that involves Sophia, plots against her, trying to separate her from the family. Augusto, Cesar and Livia's older son, is cruel and ambitious. His ultimate desire is to take hold of his father's empire, getting rid of Octavio, Cesar's son from his first marriage. Livia supports Augusto, since she hopes that once he has got the power, she can once again become the greater star she was. Julio the next son, returns after several years of studying abroad in order to marry his all-life girlfriend, Elisa. Julio is not keen on the family businesses, being this a reason for constant arguments with his father.

Cesar and Livia's younger children are twins: Claudio and Narda. Claudio suffers from infantile psychosis, for which he has been confined in a specialized institution during a long time, suffering from his family's rejection. Narda is a capricious and stubborn, even though she is also a victim of her parents' lack of love. Augusto is obsessed by Sofia and is determined to taking her at any price, knowing besides that it's the way for his father to name as his successor in the enterprises Augusto does everything yo end Sofia's marriage, until finally Uriel decides to abandon her and little Katia. Sofia and Julio meet and great passion arises between them, to the extent that Julio is determined to face anything, including ending his relationship with Elisa. The rivalry between Augusto and Julio, for Sofia's love, lets forth a whirlwind of intrigue, corruption and violent struggle for power. Fragile, but dangerous as well, this Crystal Empire may break in thousands of fragments in the hands of those who try to possess it.
