PremiseEdit

The plot revolves around the life in Madrid of Marta Ribas (Marta Etura).[1] While the presentation of the leading character takes places in 1934, the bulk of the fiction is set in 1946, after the Civil War,[1][2] a society mired by machismo and the importance of outward appearances. Marta sees herself in a situation she begins to work to support her daughter Elena (Claudia Traisac) after her husband Antonio (Daniel Grao) falls ill, facing the latter's humiliated reaction; she also faces the gossiping of neighbours in relation to a misunderstanding with her neighbour Rafael (Eduardo Noriega), who is actually secretly in love of Marta.[3][4][5] However, the job interview to work as personal assistant to an Italian businesswoman, Roberta Moretti (Maria Rosaria Omaggio), will change her present and future.[6]

The apartment building most around which fiction develops is set in the Plaza del Ángel [es], in Madrid.[7]
