Arístides Ruiz and Rodrigo Arciniegas were business partners, but when Arístides discovered his partner was dealing in illegal businesses behind his back, Rodrigo killed him before he could report him. The two daughters of Arístides, Isabella and the little Mariana, become separated after the nanny who witnesses the crime, runs off with little Mariana.

Years later, Mariana who is now called Soledad, has been raised up by her nanny who she believes to be her real mother. On the other hand, Isabella has grown up under the care of her god-father surrounded by luxuries and comforts, making her proud and selfish. But she still remembers the crime committed against her father and vows to find her sister and get revenge on Rodrigo Arciniegas.

However, fate will cause these two sisters to meet again, but in an unfavorable way since they will become enemies vying for the affections of the same man they fall in love with, Alejandro Arciniegas, the son of the man who killed their father.[5]
