The first part of the story takes place in 60's. It's the love story between Gabriela and Renato. The viewers will witness their marriage, the birth of their daughter, also named Gabriela and Renato's death from Nicando's hand. The second part takes place in 80's. Gabriela is the grown daughter of Gabriela and Renato. She has a rebel personality and she pretends to be a man in order to sail on a boat. Then she will be courted by two men: Carlos and Fernando. At the end it's unclear whom she marries, because the viewers only see a hand that receives her at the altar.
