The telenovela revolves around the impersonation of identities and the difficulties of female liberation and being gay in the 1960s.[8][9]


Ernesto (Francisco Reyes) is a powerful man who wants his only daughter, Laura (Vivianne Dietz), to get married. Laura is a young woman in her twenties who wishes to emigrate from the village and live freely away from there. What she does not know is that her father agreed with a friend from Santiago so that his son, Lorenzo (Jorge Arecheta), arrives at Vista Hermosa and conquers her. However, when Lorenzo travels with his driver Carlos (Mario Horton) to Vista Hermosa to seal the commitment, he confesses that he is gay and so they both decide to switch identities and this is how Carlos begins to be Lorenzo.[8][10]
