Cristina Carbajal is a woman who has paid an unjust sentence in jail. She was wrongly blamed for the death of her husband. After ten years, she gets out of prison for good behavior.

Her daughters, Karina and Rosita, who were five and one year old when Cristina was imprisoned, are now 15 and 11 years old. They have been brought up by their father's aunt and uncle, Eloísa and Braulio Monasterios.

The Monasterios hate Cristina. They believe that she is responsible for their nephew's death. The Monasterios have told the girls that they are orphans.
