Leo (Eduardo Santamarina) became blind because of an accident that occurred when he was 15 years old. His personality does not correspond to television stereotypes of disabled persons. On the contrary, Leo is optimistic and happy. Nicole (Laura Carmine) moves into Leo's building after leaving her home town due to the destruction caused by a hurricane.

Leo works selling encyclopedias and teaching Braille at the local museum while Nicole studies design. They meet and fall in love. Nicole works in an exclusive boutique run by Eleonor (Sabine Moussier). Eleonor has a daughter named Veronica (Lili Gorett). Besides having a complicated mother-daughter relationship, they share a secret. Julia (Alessandra Rosaldo) also lives there and is constantly looking for job. Julia is about to marry Octavio (Otto Sirgo), a wealthy, middle-aged man who gets everything his way. She is marrying him out of gratitude because he got her out of a strip club. She meets Iker (Erick Elías), a good-looking young man. There is a misunderstanding between them and Iker feels rejected.

The story tells about other couples, rich and humble. Rich people have a nice house in a district of uptown. Humble people have jobs that provide basic support.
