In the corridors of a hospital in Caracas, two people coming from very different worlds coincide in a distressing night. The only things they both desire is their son and daughter saving their lives. She is Antonieta S...展开ánchez, a humble singled-mother who fought to give her son Odulio a good start in life but lately became a juvenile delinquent. When Odulio is shot, Antonieta's life won't be the same. He is Benigno Robles, a Public Prosecutor. The day after Elisa, his only daughter has been shot, Benigno’s life will neither be the same. However, this encounter between Antonieta and Benigno, apparently a product of chance, is not fortuitous. A secret is hidden behind the false coincidence.
