All Ignacia could do was dream about that wonderful experience and about seeing Pedro again and reliving his kisses and caresses. What she didn’t expect was to meet him again as one of the workers on the construction site she was overseeing.
At 28, engineer Igancia Santamaria has every reason to feel happy; she has a privileged social status, a loving family and a fiancé who loves her: Tomas Villamayor, who is also the owner of Omega, the construction company where they both work.
But Ignacia’s world will be turned upside down when she discovers that after a ten-year engagement to him, she really doesn’t know Tomas Villamayor. It is a bitter revelation. A successful entrepreneur, Tomas is celebrating a new professional success; the unknown investor of Royal East L.A, a luxury residential project.
Having had too much to drink, he goes to meet Ignacia. And it is at this point that the unimaginable happens in broad daylight. From one moment to the next Tomas gets extremely violent with Ignacia but before he can slap her, Pedro Perez intervenes.
But who is this Pedro Perez? He is a simple, good-hearted man of humble origins who works at whatever job he can get. A kind and jovial man, at present, he is getting by a businessman’s chauffer. He lives with is mother, Margarita Perez, and his sister Lupita in a modest home in East Los Angeles.
His mother, Margarita, is constantly nervous. The imminent return of her sister, Gina Perez, sensual and quick-witted woman, is upsetting her. Many years before, Gina went to live in England, and now, after inheriting her deceased husband’s vast fortune, she is back as the brand-new investor of Royal East L.A.
On the other hand, Pedro’s girlfriend Mireya, appears to be calm and at peace, but deep down harbors a bitterness and resentment at having ended up in a wheelchair after a tragic accident, in which Pedro was behind the wheel.
Meanwhile Ignacia decides to leave the city for a few days. Her best friend Karina offers her grandparents' beach house on the coast at Malibu. The last thing Ignacia suspects is that Karina will take advantage of her absence to sleep wth Tomas.
On the coast at Malibu, Ignacia's fate will be sealed, and so will Pedro's.
