Pobre Diabla (Daniela) is a telenovela by TV Azteca in partnership with Venevision Continental, produced by Fides Velasco and starring Alejandra Lazcano, the presentation of Cristobal Lander in Mexico, Hector Arredondo, Leonardo Daniel, Rafael Sanchez Navarro and antagonistic involvement of Claudia Alvarez. It is adapted from telenovela Cara Sucia of Venezuela, which is also a version of the drama La Gata, written by Ines Rodena.
Daniela (nicknamed La Diabla) and Santiago fall in love with other at first sight after knowing each other accidentally. At first the work of Daniela was to sell newspaper. Daniela is a beautiful girl, a rebel and a fighter, raised in one of the poorest neighborhoods; and Santiago, the son of millionaires, a young man who does not have any clear aims in his life.
But not everything will be fine, as Santiago's family opposed the relationship, not only by social differences, but by a tragic past that surrounds them. The tragic past is the brutal murder of Daniela's mother, twenty years ago. It was Horatio, Santiago's father who committed the crime, but the blame is on Diego, Daniela's father. The latter is sent to jail for twenty years.
Daniela is a girl who perseveres a lot. She works as a secretary, but the chief of the company wants her and even tries to rape her. In fact, they met when Daniela was in trouble. She was selling newspapers and hit the car with a coin, but it was her future company's manager who helped her. Daniela later gets pregnant with twins by the man she loves, Santiago. This happened after they had sex in a hotel. Paulina later discovers that she is the sister of Sandra, the girl in love with Santiago. In the past, Paulina's father raped her mother, and she gave birth to Paulina. Father Vincent is killed. Michaela has to put Horatio in favor and betrays Diego, who is in fact not the murderer of the mother of Daniela.
