Coral Torres, Topacio Martínez and Esmeralda Falcón are three half-sisters who are completely unaware of each other's existence and of the fact that their father, Asdrúbal Torres, is still alive. The only thing that links them is a birthmark in the shape of a crescent. Asdrúbal, an irresponsible man, left his family years ago, and has now return to the country to look for his family and ask for their forgiveness.

Coral, the only legitimate daughter of Asdrúbal, is a young woman of captivating beauty and an aspiring model. But her life has been constrained by her domineering mother Soledad who wants to fulfill her dream of dominating the fashion world through her daughter. Soledad will do anything to see her wishes come true, and she even conspires to break up Coral and the love of her life, Alejandro Mendoza, who remains unaware that Coral is expecting his child.

Topacio grew up in an orphanage and has been eternally marked by the death of her brother Tomás. She rises to fame by becoming a beauty pageant winner and dreams of starting a family with Orlando, an ambitious man who uses Topacio's fame and beauty for his own gain. But when he betrays her, Topacio will discover the high price one has to pay for beauty.

Esmeralda, the youngest of the sisters, is shy and awkward girl who is a victim of her evil step-sisters. Despite her step-sister's envy, she leaves her childhood home once she discovers her father is alive, and sets off to search for him and fulfill her dream of being a fashion designer. All three sisters are incredibly beautiful in their own way, but nevertheless miserable in their private life.[3]
