This melodrama focuses on the conflict between the beautiful light-skinned slave woman Isaura (Bianca Rinaldi, originally, Lucelia Santos) and her cruel, lecherous master Leoncio (Leopold Pacheco) in 1855 Brazil. The heroine is the 20-year-old daughter of a white father and a mulatto mother. She was born and raised on the coffee plantation of Commander Almeida (Rubens de Falco) in the village of Goitacaces. When Juliana, Isaura's mother (Valquiria Ribeiro), dies shortly after giving birth, Gertrudes (Norma Blum), the commander's wife, treats the child as her own daughter, giving her an education and fine manners.

Isaura is devoutly religious; she prays often, avoids the witchcraft practiced by some other slaves and often wears a prominent cross around her neck. Her father, a free laborer, repeatedly begs for her freedom and makes offer after offer to buy her from the commander. Despite promises to set her free one day, every offer is rejected. Isaura remains a slave because she is a slave's daughter—and freedom always seems to be just beyond her reach. When commander realizes his fault, it is too late.

In 1854, when Isaura is a young adult, the commander’s stupid, degenerate son Leôncio returns to the fazenda after piling up enormous debts. He soon marries Malvina (Maria Ribeiro), daughter of Colonel Sebastiao (Paulo Figueiredo). Nevertheless, he develops a dangerous fixation with Isaura and determines to make her his mistress.

The commander and Gertrudes protect Isaura from Leôncio for a while, but they become ill and pass away before setting her free. The sweet young woman winds up at the mercy of an obsessed, depraved man, fighting to maintain her dignity and integrity. As Isaura desperately struggles to keep her dreams alive, she discovers true love for the first time.


Telemundo started airing the serial as La Esclava Isaura (dubbed into Spanish) in the US on May 7, 2007. It temporarily aired for two hours per night from 9 to 11 p.m. (ET/PT) from July 24 until August 3, 2007. [5] The finale aired December 3, 2007.

In June, 2007, Isaura's time slot (which included one soccer preemption) averaged 680,000 core adult viewers (ages 18 to 49). That was a 16 percent increase over the year before, when Decisiones aired during that hour, according to Nielsen Media Research. [6] During November, the show averaged 587,000 core viewers.

Isaura's Spanish voice is Liliana Barba, who also dubbed Lizzie McGuire and Julie Mayer in Desperate Housewives.
