Paula Duarte and Alejandro Monroy were happily engaged in their youth. They ended the relationship when Alejandro left to study abroad, forced by his father. His father did not approve of Paula as she did not seem apropiate for him due to her middle-class background. Paula's father, a maniac depressive man, commits suicide. She, her mother and sister are forced to cope alone. Looking for a way to forget Alejandro and the death of her father, Paula begins dating Rogelio Bermúdez. He's a handsome, funny and experienced man, they soon start a relationship and become pregnant. They marry and have two children: Daniel and Tania. Alejandro later in life marries Amparo Ávalos, a beautiful but promiscuous and capricious woman. They have a son, Eduardo. Over the years, Alejandro divorces his wife, sick of the high maintenance of his wife.

Paula and Alejandro meet again many years later, when their children start a relationship upon meeting in university. Over the years her happy relationship with her husband turns sour as she can not forget her past love Alejandro. Rogelio, due to this has become a misogynist and domineering man, with whom she was deeply unhappy. Love struggles to break through again between Paula and Alejandro, but her still intact marriage and children keep them separated.

The story chronicles the lives of all the characters who seem to be immersed in between conflict, love, and ambition. Paula discovers that Rogelio, her husband is cheating with someone she trusts blindly and begins working to feel some independence after her friend offers her a job at her retailor office. Meanwhile, Alejandro continues to pursue her despite her marriage and the idea of being with him stops Paula from working at her marriage. She decides to call of their marriage and give herself a chance to be happy with Alejandro. However, the things prove to become difficult and life stops them at every turn.

Vivir a Destiempo shows the struggle of three middle-class families and two upper class ones to get ahead in a world in crisis. The struggle of parents to rescue their children and show them the right path. The struggle of young people to overcome their problems and define who they are and where they go. Adults and young people in search of their own identity. Love, hate, passion. Sarcasm, black humor, sincere affection, frustrations and great satisfaction. Crude and violent events, tender and emotional stories that lead us to laughter and tears.
