Plot edit

It began as the love story between two boys who, by a bad move from his father, the two families were confronted and the love they felt was difficult to carry out without someone trying to separate them. As time went by, in the soap opera there were more bad characters than good ones. The only good ones seemed to be only Valeria (Natalia Oreiro) and Diego (Diego Ramos). And many times, there were chapters where evil was predominate over goodness. And in this soap opera, in addition, took advantage of the evil character of Carla (Carina Zampini), and moved it to her to continue doing of his own with Salerno (Oscar Ferreiro), Diego's father. It was the first time that a character moved from one soap opera to another in Argentina, without either of them having any relationship, and the outstanding performance of Liliana Custo.
