Plot[edit]

Four girls (Mónica, Elena, Leticia and Isabel) join an art academy pursuing their dreams of a career in acting and singing. These four girls are of different backgrounds:

  • Monica is wealthy but humble and sweet. She dates Rodrigo, who works under her father at their supermarket and drives a taxi on the side. When Rodrigo is framed by Monica's cousin Federico and sent to jail for industrial espionage, she stands by him, but she cannot forget about her previous boyfriend Roger, who was also victim of an attempted murder by Federico.
  • Elena is poor and tough. She was Rodrigo's first girlfriend but Rodrigo dumped her for Monica, causing a rift between the two girls. Later, however, it is revealed that Elena's father was also Monica's biological father; their respective mothers had also been active in theater and had also been friends and rivals.
  • Isabel is middle-class and very selfless. She lives with her widowed father. She gets involved with Pedro, who turns out to be married, but though Pedro's terminally-ill wife forgives her and entrusts her the care of their daughter Betty, she distrusts Pedro.
  • Leticia is also middle-class but a social climber who is not hesitant to speak her mind and to pretend to get on with rich men. She eventually "marries" Federico, not realizing that the wedding had no legal value (because the form had not been filled with the police station), and later is sent to work under her grandmother, who was also once a social climber but has mellowed and become wiser.
