Plot edit

For most of her adult life, Tomasa has served the Paredes family, and she has been a cheerful, good-hearted servant towards them. Her only son, Ramón, works in Colombia. Tomasa has practically raised up the two daughters of the Paredes family, Fabiana and Miguelina, as if they are her own. Tomasa is satisfied with her simple, uncomplicated life, and she couldn't wish for more. But soon, her life is going to be turned upside down due to several events. First, her son Ramón will return from Colombia to stay in Caracas. Secondly, her employers, the Paredes, are involved in an airplane accident, and she discovers that she is the sole beneficiary of their life insurance policy worth two million dollars. Tomasa will be transformed from a simple maid to a millionaire.

However, not everything will go smoothly for Tomasa, as people will begin to view her differently once they discover that she has a lot of money. Tomasa will now have to stand by her strong principles and watch over her family and protect them from the greed of others. Her life becomes even more complicated with the introduction of Severo Bustamante, a romantic love interest who is in debt and will try to get close to Tomasa in order to obtain some of her money. Severo is a relative of the Paderes, and his compulsive gambling habits have led to his unstable financial situation. Moreover, Severo will attempt to conquer Tomasa, but he is married to Virginia who is a model of a perfect housewife. Virginia will become one of Tomasa's enemies after discovering that her husband is about to leave her in order to pursue a relationship with Tomasa. Antonio, Severo's brother will also enter Tomasa's life. At first doubtful as to why the Paredes left their money to a maid, he soon discovers that family and love are what is important – especially to Tomasa. However, their potential love will be ruined by the return of Roxana, Severo's ex-wife who abandoned him and their seven-year-old son in order to run away with her lover.[4][5]
