PlotEdit

In 2004, Luis Rolón (Federico Amador) is living a quiet life with his partner, Iracema (Lola Banfi) and their baby daughter, Bruna, in a small town in Patagonia called Lago Místico. One day, Luis comes home to find Iracema bleeding on the floor and she tragically dies in his arms. Before she dies, Iracema tells Luis it was her abusive ex-boyfriend who stabbed her. Iracema had suffered years of abuse at the hands of her ex-boyfriend, Vito Paternó (Esteban Lamothe). Iracema had escaped from Buenos Aires to Lago Místico after finding out she was pregnant with Bruna, without telling Vito about her pregnancy. Iracema later met Luis, who agreed to raise the baby as his own. Iracema never wanted to talk about her past and barely told Luis anything about Vito. Vito had tracked Iracema down and murdered her after she refused to get back together with him.

Luis panics that he will be charged with Iracema's murder so he escapes Lago Místico with Bruna in tow. A young woman named Luciana Cervantes (Calu Rivero) sees him flee and is horrified to find Iracema's body. Luis ends up in Buenos Aires, where he adopts the new identity of Omar Pereyra and remakes his life.

Fourteen years later, Omar (formerly Luis) works as a carpenter and lives with a now-teenage Bruna (Azul Fernández) in a boarding house. Omar decides to fulfill an old promise he made to Bruna: finish high school. At the night school he attends, Omar re-encounters Luciana, who recognizes him from all those years ago. Omar's past, which he thought he had escaped, comes back to haunt him and he finally has to clear his name. Luciana believes in his innocence and decides to help him. Luciana and Omar fall in love, but they have a major obstacle: Vito, who is now in a relationship with Luciana and refuses to let her go. Omar's longtime friend, Griselda Ramos (Eugenia Tobal), who has always been in love with him, works with Vito to keep Omar and Luciana apart.

Luciana and Omar start a relationship, but their happiness is cut short when they are torn apart by a scheme orchestrated by Vito and Griselda. Although their love for each other is evident, Luciana and Omar continue to be separated time and time again by Vito and Griselda's constant manipulations. Omar starts a relationship with Griselda out of guilt after she tried to take her own life when he told her he was in love with Luciana and not with her. Luciana gets engaged to Vito, much to Omar's disappointment.

Luciana finds out about Vito's manipulations and when she goes to confront him, she sees him in the throes of passion with her own mother, María Marta (Patricia Viggiano). Luciana finally realizes what kind of man Vito is. Luciana reunites with Omar and they make love for the first time in the house Omar is building. Vito sees them together and sets the house on fire. Griselda pulls Omar out of the fire and Omar rescues Luciana. These series of events causes the truth about Vito murdering Iracema to finally come out.

Now more empowered than ever, Luciana decides to help Omar, his police officer friend José (Rodrigo Guirao Díaz), and Iracema's sister, Rita (Bárbara Amaral), bring Vito to justice. Luciana continues her relationship with Vito in order to gather evidence against him. After Vito attempts to rape Luciana, she reveals that she knows he is Iracema's murderer and runs off, traumatized by the assault. To get Omar to tell him where Luciana is, Vito kidnaps Bruna. When Vito is about to kill Bruna, Omar has no choice but to reveal to Vito that Bruna is his biological daughter. Vito is furious that Omar not only "stole" two women he loved, but his daughter, too. Omar and Vito have a violent confrontation on a boat and Vito ends up falling into the water. Omar is arrested and jailed for Vito's murder, but he is actually still alive. Luciana returns and reveals she is pregnant. Vito kidnaps Luciana and tries to flee the country, but fails and is finally arrested for Iracema's murder.

Everything culminates when Vito is kidnapped by Rita and cult leader, Nelson Amarante (Adrián Navarro). Before the pair can kill Vito, José and Omar stop them. Vito then kidnaps Omar and tries to kill him, but Luciana arrives just in time to save him. Vito is about to murder Luciana and Omar, when Griselda arrives and kills him. Immediately after, Griselda throws herself out of a window and falls to her death.

A while later, Luciana, Omar, Bruna, and Juani (Franco Masini), who is Bruna's boyfriend and Luciana's nephew, all move to Lago Místico. Luciana and Omar welcome their baby boy. They are finally free of the obstacles that kept them apart and can finally live happily ever after.
