The story of Marimar bespeaks a journey of a young lass who has been deprived of everything that was rightfully hers. Separated from her real parents at a young age, Marimar was found and raised by an old couple who treat her as their own grandchild. Not knowing that she is the sole heiress to the riches of Don Gustavo Aldama, Marimar lives a modest and carefree life by the sea. She befriends the ambitious Angelika, who later holds the greatest grudge against her due to an incident that is beyond Marimar’s control.
Angelika becomes the girlfriend of Sergio Santibañez, but her selfishness and gold-digging nature is further manifested when she marries Sergio’s father, the resort tycoon Renato Santibañez. Devastated by the betrayal of the woman he loves, Sergio vows to retaliate against his father and ex-girlfriend. He meets the unassuming Marimar, who easily falls in love with him.
Marimar’s complicated and tormented life begins when she agrees to marry Sergio and is subjected to the cruelty of Angelika in the Santibañez mansion. Here starts Marimar’s awakening to the harsh reality of what her love for Sergio has done to her. And when fate begins to favor the once oppressed Marimar, how will she turn the tables on Sergio and all the others who once looked down on her?
