Before she dies, their mother asks him to promise always to take care of her, but the two of them are sent to separate orphanages. They escape, and grow up together on the streets. When they are adults, they discover that their parents' insurance company failed to contact them after the accident, and the money they receive enables them to open a restaurant. She also wins a scholarship to study psychology and falls in love with her professor, Chris. This creates tension between her and Joshua.

Lack of cinematography language
Unfortunately this story never takes off to be a movie, it has definitely the codes of any standard telenovela: characters going from poverty to prosperity, some
incoherent tragedies and obviously a romance; but not even these elements transmit any maturity from the film, it is very primary.
