SynopsisEdit

In this Colombian telenovela, a humble man named Oscar (Robinson Díaz) is deeply in love with his neighbor Tatiana (Flora Martínez), despite the fact that they are of different social classes. This gives the name of the novela (Vecinos-Neighbors). During the novela, however, an ambitious woman named Jessica (Sara Corrales) is trying to marry Oscar because of his money when he won the lottery. She acts nice to him, since she is Oscar's girlfriend, but would not be so nice if Oscar didn't have money. Oscar finds people who don't like him during the way, like Jessica's boss and lover Rodolfo (Luis Mesa) and many of his neighbors. His mother (Maria Margarita Giraldo) and friends, however, help him along the way nonetheless. In the end, all the barriers are cleared, and Oscar and Tatiana live happily ever after.
