The telenovela takes place in Isla Paraíso, a beautiful and picturesque place, located at the end of the world, it is strangely a town where only men live, until one day a bus full of only women arrives, which will change the whole town.
Carolina is a housewife who is involved in a millionaire scam due to the irresponsible handling of her husband. Persecuted by the police, she flees with her son Andy and her Dominican employee Madelyn, seeking refuge in the convent where her twin sister Celeste lives. However, Celeste cannot help her, since she is leaving for a sacrificed mission in a remote town in southern Chile: Isla Paraíso. The town is located at the end of the world and is only inhabited by men. This condition leads Father Gabriel to make an announcement that has everyone shaken up: a bus full of women will soon arrive, who will come to work, granting them facilities to establish themselves. Thus, the priest thinks, they will return life back into the town that is destined to disappear.
While Father Gabriel is determined to see the town full of women, on the other side is his great critic: Óscar León, a powerful landowner who gives work to most of the men of Isla Paraíso. Óscar has personal reasons for not wanting woman in town. But once they arrive in the area, there is no turning back. Woman arriving to the town include a nun, a Caribbean employee, and a young woman left at the altar. What no one suspects is that Celeste is an impostor, because in reality she is Carolina, the woman persecuted by police, who has managed to escape by taking refuge in Isla Paraíso and posing as her sister. Óscar will become her new enemy because without a doubt, he would be willing to hand her over to the police if he discovered her true identity. Although without realizing it, Óscar also discovers that Carolina is the first woman he has trusted again after many years.
