After the death of Alondra's mother, her father Baldomero, who feels sad and lonely, brings his sister Loretto and her two kids, Maria Elisa and Rigoberto to live in his house, hoping that Loretto will replace a mother to Alondra. But he is mistaken. Loretto hates Alondra, as she reminds her of Alondra's mother who used to be an actress and whom Baldomero's family never accepted. Years go by, and Alondra grows up into a beautiful, rebellious girl, with very independent and progressive views for that time. Her constant fights with Loretto continue, but now she learned how to fight back.

In the meantime, Baldomero spends most of the time on his ranch in arms of his new love Carmelina, unaware of what's going on in his house. Loretto manages not only to make Alondra's life a living hell, but also the life of her own daughter Maria Elisa, shy and weak girl. She tries to force her in marrying a rich old man, while Maria Elisa is in love with a young officer Raul. To make things worse, Loretto's evil and ambitious son Rigoberto gets kicked out of a seminary and returns home, also torturing Alondra and Maria Elisa. Alondra meets a retired famous singer Leticia del Bosque. Leticia influences and advises Alondra, she suggests that Alondra goes on the ranch and tells everything to Baldomero. On Alondra's way to the ranch, she accidentally meets Bruno. They live a very passionate love, but later she discovers that he is married and has 2 children. Further more, on the ranch she finds out that her father is going to re-marry for the second time. Disappointed she returns home, where she finds that Maria Elisa is also upset, as she is pregnant and believes that Raul has abandoned her. Two girls decide to go to Mexico City in search for a better life, success and new love. In Mexico City, enterprising Alondra starts a flower business and meets a new suitor, Carlos.
