Lysa is a young woman with a beauty desired by men and envied by women. One day, a fire breaks out in the school she works in. While trying to rescue her students, a part of her face gets burned. She lost her beauty in that tragic fire which gave her a lifetime scar, physically and emotionally.
Some people died in the fire, and among them is Mr. Sandejas who is rumored to have an affair with her.
