Claudio ignores his fake friend René who is behind the drug addiction that drove his son to suicide. René hates Claudio and want to destroy his entire family including whimsical Mónica, the youngest of the de la Mora. Cecilia does not have time for such machinations, because one night is attacked and sexually assaulted by Esteban Camacho, her neighbor that is obsessed with her.
