Alma Durán and Andrés Renteria fell in love as teenagers. They are soulmates, but destiny has always found a way to keep them apart, at all costs, throughout the years. After separating, they find each other again as adults. Their lives have taken different paths, but they are determined to escape together. However, tragedy surrounds them and separates them once more.
When Alma and Andrés reunite again many years later all hell breaks through. Alma and Andrés' lives enter a labyrinth that seems to have no escape. Passion, ambition, intrigues, compromises, and lies continue to separate them while they walk under a Red Sky that will not allow them to unite and be happy.
Childhood sweethearts, Alma Durán and Andrés Renteria, have a passionate reuninon after being apart for many years. They decide to run away together, but Alma is framed by her mother-in-law, Loreto, for the accidental death of Alma's abusive, alcoholic husband, Victor. She is sentenced to 20 years in prison. In prison, Alma gives birth to her and Andrés's daughter, who Loreto steals. Loreto knows the baby, Daniela, cannot be her son's baby since his and Alma's marriage was never consummated due to his impotence.
Andrés never learns of these events. He marries his old girlfriend, Lucrecia, who is pregnant with what he believes to be his child. In reality, the baby is the product of a one-night-stand Lucrecia had. Alma spends the next 20 years in prison thinking Andrés didn't care to help her, meanwhile Andrés thinks she preferred to stay with her husband.
When Alma gets out of prison, she is determined to find her daughter. She is courted by Gonzalo Molina, a much older rich ranch owner, who has always liked her. He falls in love with her and asks her to marry him. Alma, after much thought, accepts his proposal. With him she has fun and feels secure. Andrés has had a gray life, though he loves his "son", Sebastian, his marriage has been a failure. He was never able to love his wife, for the memory of Alma has always haunted him.
Sebastian and Daniela have fallen in love without knowing they are supposedly brother and sister. Gonzalo introduces Alma to his family who are not happy with their union. Alma and Andrés are shocked to once again encounter each other. Andrés wants to be with her but Alma is only interested in Daniela. Daniela has been poisoned against Alma by Loreto and is reluctant to form a relationship. Alma tells Daniela that Loreto is not her grandmother. Gonzalo claims he is Daniela's father, which Alma goes along with.
Andrés continually pursues Alma until she finally realizes they are meant to be together. Daniela and Sebastian get married in secret. When Andrés informs Alma of their marriage, she is horrified and finally tells him that he is Daniela's father. Sebastian and Daniela are heartbroken when they are told they are siblings. Lucrecia decides not to reveal Sebastian's true paternity and use the situation to split Alma and Andrés up.
Gonzalo passes away and leaves Alma with everything. This ignites a war between Alma and the Molina family. After Sebastian and Daniela nearly die in a joint suicide attempt, Andrés and Alma's relationship falls apart and they split up. It is decided they must keep their children apart. Sebastian goes to Paris with his parents and best friend, César, while Daniela stays in Mexico. While apart, Andrés and Alma realize they made a mistake and reunite immediately after Andrés returns. However, things get more complicated when Daniela finds out she is having Sebastian's baby. It is decided that Andrés and Alma will rise the baby as their own, but when Sebastian finds out, those plans are scrapped.
It is soon revealed that Victor never died and that Loreto has been hiding him for the past twenty years. Victor comes to town going by the alais David Mansetti and claiming to be Victor's paternal cousin. While Andrés is recovering in the hospital after being pushed out of a window by Loreto, he and Alma finally get married. Alma is shocked when she comes face to face with Victor. It clear any happiness Alma has will be short-lived, as Victor and Loreto are ready to make her life hell once again.
