Alma de Hierro is a 2008–2009 Mexican telenovela produced by Televisa. It is a remake of the Argentinian production, Son de Fierro, with the characters' names rewritten and adapted to the Mexican audience. The main actors were Blanca Guerra, Alejandro Camacho, Christian Vega, Flavio Medina, Lisardo and Alejandra Barros, with Jorge Poza, Zuria Vega, Adamari López, Angelique Boyer, Eddy Vilard, Martha Julia, and Luz María Aguilar playing supporting roles. The show earned eight awards at the "TV y Novelas" award celebration, becoming the highest-awarded production of the 2009 season.
The protagonist of this telenovela, full of anecdotes and told in a comic way, is the Hierro family. José Antonio Hierro, a good man, friendly but overly zealous, whom even his wife calls Hierro, married Elena Jiménez 25 years ago and now they have three children: Sebastian, Sandy and Wicho. They have made a decent living working through Hierro's business, a delicatessen located in front of their home where, in addition to José and his family, Mimiche (Elena's mother) and Paty (Elena's sister) live, as well as Angelito (Jose's brother) and Ezekiel (whom Elena and Hierro took in from the streets and have raised as a child). Sebastian lost his sight at the age of ten, so Elena stopped teaching to help him adapt to his new life. Today he has a degree in history and teaches the subject at the school where his brother Wicho studies, as well as the charming and rebellious teenager, Renata.
