In a convent in Miami, Teresa is about to take her vows as a novice when she receives news of her father's death through murder. She begins to have doubts about her vocation and decides to leave the convent to take revenge on her father's murderer. Her efforts are frustrated by her step-mother Sabrina, but she ends up also discovering love in the form of two twin brothers who are the opposite of each other.
