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. Eleonor has a daughter named Veronica. Besides having a complicated mother-daughter relationship, they share a secret. Julia also lives there and is constantly looking for job. Julia is about to marry Octavio, 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.
