Eighteen years later, they find themselves established in a small apartment in a popular area. She has a modest job, and although she has serious eye problems, she does not take care of her health by attending to the needs of her children. Patricio studies Laws and dreams of a comfortable and prosperous future; Edmundo studied Medicine and is a bright but undisciplined student, and Ignacio was only able to finish high school because he works in a mechanic's workshop, because he helps his mother to pay the expenses of the house and the studies of his brothers.

Patricio has become a boyfriend of Lucero, daughter of Julieta, who hosted them when they arrived in the city, but soon after, he rejects her when he meets Olga, a fickle girl whose fortune dazzles him, which leads him to be ashamed of his family And to lie about their origin, even going so far as to deny their mother. Olga begins to doubt the lies of Patricio, reason why it spies and it discovers that lives very modestly. Exposed, he lies to her again telling her that Refugio was her nanny, and because she has a mental illness, she has to take care of her. She admires him for charity. Refugio tries in vain to make Patricio understand that with Olga he will never be happy. On the other hand, Edmundo begins to court Lucero, unintentionally hurting Ignacio, who loves her in secret.

Olga asks her father, the lawyer Romulo Ancira, to employ Patricio in his law firm. As the father is fed up with the whims of the daughter, he agrees and soon announces his commitment to marriage. As a result of his wedding, Patricio moves away completely from his mother and his brothers. When Refugio tries to approach Olga to recover the affection of its son, only receives humiliations; This causes disputes between Edmundo and Ignacio.

Patricio finds out that his father is not the same as that of his brothers; Accuses his mother of being unfaithful and demands that she never come back to him. As a result, Refugio falls into a severe depression that leads her to lose her job and aggravates her loss of sight.

Neither Edmundo nor Ignacio seem to be able to comfort her, but they intend to get her out; Edmundo, looking for easy money with an illegal business, and Ignacio, in debt. Edmundo soon falls in jail and the situation is aggravated when Ignacio goes to Patricio to ask him to defend it before the law and this one refuses.
