The story begins when the man who Morelia thinks is her father dies without revealing the secret of her true origin. A landowner in her hometown, Michoacán, harasses her and she is forced to run away. She arrives to Miami, where she has no choice but to work in a nightclub. During her first day at work, an insolent customer, Le Blanc goes too far with her. Morelia slaps her and he accuses her of stealing his wallet after that.

Thanks to Carlos Montero, a lazy lawyer, she avoids going to jail, however she loses her job. Thus, Morelia begins to work as a maid at the Campos Miranda's residence, where she meets the oldest son, Jose Enrique. They fall in love, but their romance will be opposed by many.
