The debut date was april 30 of 2007, and the last episode took place on august 16 of the same year.

History

Santiago, 1992Rodrigo Quintana, Piedad Estévez, Julián García and Benjamín Morandé are inseparable friends. Full of ideals and future personal projects, they study medicine and are dreaming of working together helping the people in need.

Rodrigo (Francisco Melo) is the one that has the most charm, intelligent and a natural leader of the group. His personality was what made Piedad (Sigrid Alegría) feel attracted to him. They live their lives with a passionate love, all this while Julián (Álvaro Rudolphy) loves her in silence. But the rough life of Quintana, plus his drug and alcohol addiction ended up breaking his relationship with Piedad. His actions took him to a point where he disappeared from his friends lives, after an incident that left a dead body and Piedad in hospital room.

Rodrigo Quintana left his friend and his studies to enter himself in a rehabilitation clinic outside Chile. After this incident Piedad was never the same person.

Santiago, 2007Today, 15 years later, and when Benjamín, Julián and Piedad had forgotten about the past, Rodrigo returns to their lives. Partners in a medical clinic, the three doctors find out about Rodrigo Quintana's return, after years in Europe. The friends have changed. While Quintana opted for a good lifestyle in a rural clinic, his friends have accomplished a small fortune, working on the eyes of the high class.

His return brakes Piedad's daily rutine, who realizes that Rodrigo is still the love of her life.

While Julián —divorced for a year from Matilde (Alejandra Fosalba)—, began to become preoccupied with Piedad. He feels that the story could repeat itself and that Rodrigo will take away the love of this life, Piedad.

But love will not be the only thing that will affect this group of friends. While they were all present at an event, they will all be witnesses to a crime. The victim, María Gracia Carpenter (Amparo Noguera), a very well known woman of the society, will be the third death that torments the city.

Before her, the mysterious disappearance of Angela Argento (María José León), a sophisticated executive, was very closely followed by the media and the police. All the events suggested that they were in the presence of a serial killer, whose victims were beautiful women, independent and from high class. Everyone of them assassinated with the same style, a deep and accurate cut to take away their hearts.

The lead police detective Eva Zanetti (Paola Volpato) was in charge of the investigation. Everyone is a suspect. Slowly the circle will tighten itself and the guilty will begin to be questioned. Only one is the killer, and with the passing of the days, one will know his or her identity.

    "Final"

    Julián García, after putting Piedad to sleep, takes her and little Sofía to a near by factory, with the intentions of revealing his identity to her, and trying to gain her confidence to try to scape. While Rodrigo escapes from police after they were looking for him for the death of Tatiana, he follows Julián to the factory, where he speaks to the cops, who already found out that the fingerprints belong to Julián. Rodrigo enters the factory and confronts Julián, who wounds him with a knife, and sprays gasoline on him in order to burn him alive. Rodrigo fights off the attack and Piedad escapes. Finally, Julián lights up Rodrigo and when Julián tries to escape, Rodrigo pushes him inside the factory, breaking some gas pipes. The factory then explodes. Julián García comes out walking from the factory, and is killed by Benjamín, after he takes a gun from a detective and shoots while the killer was burning alive.

    The final is wide open: Rodrigo ends up with part of his face burned, and we do not know if he gains back Piedad's love, and also nobody knows what happened to the Matilde situation. Also, it is obvious that Benjamín would go to jail for killing Julián, but this is not shown.

    Pablo Illanes has explicitly said that there will not be a sequel to the soap opera, because it will not be appropriate with his spirit.

    Critiques

    At the end of july and beginning of august, the government spoke on several opportunities, about the violence shown in this soap opera. According to Chilean official José Antonio Viera-Gallo, there are a couple of chilean shows that deserve criticism, one of them is the mentioned soap opera, "because there are a series of infractions, one after another (...) I'm not saying that this will affect Chilean society, but in my opinion a public channel should not show such atrocities". He added that this did not mean that he was for Censored events, and that this is only a personal opinion, and not because he is a chilean official. "Away from me all censored events, in the contrary, but in general the public channels, this type of scenes can not be shown, all because of its violence", he said. His comments had all kinds of discussions, one of them was from Daniel Urrea, a chilean personality known as MR.TV who answered by the newspaper Las Últimas Noticias: "It is an exaggeration, the critiques by Viera Gallo, people always blame television for anything"..."Julián in real life would not have had so much success with his crimes". Without doubt, this soup opera did not pass inadvertent.

    Curiosities

    * Everyone of Julián's victims had last names of famous horror cinema directors (George Romero, John Carpenter, David Lynch, Darío Argento, etc). Pablo Illanes is a fan of the genre, and by this means he wanted to show appreciation to his inspiration.

    *The daughters of the couple Pedro Pablo Peñafiel and Josefa "Pepi" Morandé, have the last names of Peñafiel Morandé, that are the last names of chilean TV personality Kike Morandé.

    * It was the first chilean Soap Opera to debut first on the INTERNET and later on TV: the first episode was available in tvn.cl several hours prior to the official debut.

    * The Hunter, would always play the song When I see you smile, favorite song of Piedad and Rodrigo when they were young, and because Julián hated that love; he would put that song on in order to kill that love too.

    *In December of 2007, the television channel released the entire soap opera Alguien te Mira in DVD format.
