Plot summary

A story where despite obstacles and betrayals, love succeeds, if not in the present, at least in the future and its generations. This is a heartbreaking story where power, envy, selfishness and the desire for possession tragically mark the deep love between Paulina (Camila Sodi) and Adrián (Osvaldo Benavides), who nevertheless manage to perpetuate their love and pass it on to their daughter Valentina (Camila Sodi) and Paulina's adopted son, their beloved Mauricio (Ignacio Casano). This melodrama is divided in two stages; in each one of them are the obstacles where love, first of Paulina and Adrian and later of Valentina and Mauricio, triumphs.

First stage

It is the story of Paulina and Adrián, a couple who love each other despite their families' dark past. Paulina is the daughter of Gonzalo Murat, a wealthy hotel entrepreneur who does not accept the relationship of his daughter with Adrián, with the reason that he does not have the same status as them. On the other hand, Julieta, Adrián's sister, is obsessed with him and blames Gonzalo for the death of her father; a situation that makes her feel a hatred for the entire Murat family. Julieta is right, Gonzalo is not the perfect man his wife, Inés, and his daughters Nuria and Paulina believe, since he is a man without a heart and double standards, because for more than ten years he has been having a relationship with Mónica, his former secretary with whom he also has two sons: René and Alan.

Nuria, sister of Paulina, join forces with Julieta to separate Paulina from Adrián. The multiple disagreements and misunderstandings caused by their rivals and enemies, cause Paulina and Adrián to be separated, not knowing that Paulina is pregnant.

Being away from Adrián, Camilo, an ex-boyfriend of Paulina, offers to take care and give his surname to the child. At the same time, Paulina decides to take charge of Mauricio, a deaf-mute child who adores Paulina and lives in the cover of the Murat family.

However, Adrián will return to the life of Paulina with the intention to win her love back. After they reconcile, they both decide to get married. On the joyous occasion, Julieta shows up, in order to murder Paulina, but instead shoots Adrián and Paulina. Sadly they both die in each other's arms, promising eternal love for one another.

Second stage

It has been 17 years since the tragedy that changed the life of Mauricio and Valentina, who have grown apart all this time, but communicating continuously. Valentina, who strongly resembles her mother physically, lives in Los Angeles along with Fernanda, her close friend, and Mauricio lives in Cancún, along with his grandmother Raquel.

Mauricio has been in love with Valentina since a child, and he will do everything possible to protect and care for her despite his disability and the obstacles that may arise.

Love is present in this story, as it was in the past, but the evil Nuria, who remains resentful and full of frustration, will do whatever in her power to get the fortune of her father. As well as the crazy Julieta, who is determined to repeat history and put an end to the life of Valentina and Mauricio, as she did in the past with Paulina and Adrián.
