Fedora Garcés (Sonya Smith) is a woman who had everything, a husband she loved, two small daughters and a perfume factory with which she and her family had a comfortable life. An ambitious and ruthless woman named Octavia Alarcón (Frances Ondiviela), out of sheer envy, snatched away everything she had.
Octavia's husband murdered the husband of Fedora and got Fedora to appear as the culprit of that murder. Octavia snatched her perfume factory, her fortune and snatched her daughters leaving Fedora locked in prison for that murder she did not commit.
The daughters of Fedora were given to an older woman who raised them by making them believe that they were her granddaughters by naming them Diana and Gaby. Octavia and her family, the Irazabal, became a rich and powerful family thanks to what Octavia stole from Fedora.
Years later Fedora is released by a pardon and begins to work like singer under the nickname of "La Gaviota", but with the idea to recover what they snatched away from her and get revenge on the Irazabal family.
Meanwhile, the daughters of Fedora, Diana (Alejandra Lazcano) and Gaby (Mariana Torres), who have grown up humbly with their adoptive grandmother, come to work at Octavia's house. Gaby as a servant and Diana as Octavia's mother-in-law's nurse. Their paths cross with the two sons of Octavia, Maximiliano (David Zepeda and Larry Irazabal (William Levy.
