On a business trip to Miami, Regina meets Samuel (Enrique Ibañez), a much younger man, and they have a brief but torrid affair. On her return, Regina finds to her horror that Samuel is now working for her husband. To make matters worse, her daughter Jessica (Dominika Paleta) falls for her father's new employee. To save Regina's reputation, Samuel agrees to marry Jessica.
