The story revolves around the lives of six women who are facing the reality of their life with their husbands;
- Antonia Palacios (Rebecca Jones), a successful and respected woman, who is married to Patricio González (René Strickler), and together they have a daughter, Paola (Thelma Madrigal). Antonia works for Braulio Longoria's (Alejandro Camacho) company, but when Paola has an accident, Antonia decides to resign and spend more time with her family. When Paola recovers, she and Patricio encourage Antonia to start her own real estate company.
- Rosaura Pereyra (Zaide Silvia Gutiérrez), is a secretary who is married to Rolando Salgar (Jesús Ochoa), a womanizing taxi driver. Rolando is having an affair with a younger woman, Mireya, and leaves Rosaura and their two children César and Jennifer. Rosaura starts working for Antonia's real estate company, and will try anything to get her husband back.
- Bárbara Mantilla (Alejandra Barros) is a woman who works for Antonia's real estate business. Behind the appearance of a happy woman, Bárbara hides an intense frustration caused by Jaime Espinosa (Juan Carlos Barreto), a jealous and alcoholic husband who is physically abusive. Along with the couple lives his mother, Dona Conchita Cabrera (Magda Guzmán), a manipulative woman who tries to ruin the life of Bárbara and supports Jaime's actions. Antonia soon discovers these problems and tries to help Barbara.
- Maite Duarte (Sophie Alexander) is a former client of Antonia who comes to work for Antonia's real estate company after she is let go from the company she worked before. Antonia realizes that Maite is an ambitious and neurotic woman who is determined to compete with her husband, Jorge Casso (Mark Tacher), for money. Maite begins a legal fight with him to get a divorce. Despite this, Antonia doesn't deny the opportunity to work and tries to help her.
- Yorley Quiroga (Africa Zavala) is a hard-working woman who is tired of David Magaña (Flavio Medina), her slacker husband, who abandons his family to try his luck in the United States. Meanwhile, Yorley falls in love with Leonardo Torres (Agustín Arana), but unfortunately for her, her daughter and David disagree with the relationship and try to break them up.
- Valeria Andrade (Nailea Norvind) is a socialite and fashion icon. Unbeknownst to society, she is a victim of psychological abuse by her husband, the respected businessman Braulio Longoria. Valeria has always had the idea that she is just a rag doll that Braulio bought from her mother, a prostitute who believed that Braulio would give a better life to her daughter and help her out financially. Their son, Sebastián (Alfonso Dosal), is rebellious and ignorant to the problems of his parents. Valeria soon joins the team of Antonia.
Renato Villamar (Édgar Vivar) is the gay owner of a beauty salon. Charito (Marcia Coutiño), one of the haidressers and Renato's best friend, is completely in love with handyman Alcides (Alex Sirvent). Alcides is gay but, fearing rejection, keeps his true sexual orientation a secret - which he eventually reveals to Renato and Barbara. Alcides' best friend Quintín (Eduardo España), a chauvinistic man who spends his time criticising women for their 'lack of morals', falls for Charito.
Antonia is proud of the assistance being given to the other women. All this changes when she develops breast cancer that begins to slowly break down her marriage when she tries to hide it. But despite all of this, Antonia is no longer the example to follow and changes the lives of all women who have come to her and gradually learns that there still is hope for love again.
