At first, Blanca and Alisha try hard to get close to Gloria, but gradually they become suspicious of her; Because he didn’t invite anyone to his house and even refused to celebrate his son Hugo’s one-year-old birthday. All these distances and secrets were because Gloria and her family are hiding many secrets that no one should know about. For this reason, Gloria decides to participate in different events little by little so as not to raise more doubts. On the other hand, the two teenage members of the family decide that they should go after their own lives when they see that Gloria is dealing with her relationships without considering them.
