Lea (Micaella), who is already used to the disagreements between her elder sisters, continues to be the peacemaker to keep their family intact.

It never occurred to them that one man can tear them apart.

He claims that he was mistaken for a rebel by the military. hough he is a stranger, the sisters take him in until he recovers.

As Ester develops a liking for Felipe and gets intimate with him, it is evident to Sonya that it is the innocent and youthful Lea whom Felipe likes.

But who is he anyway? What really brings him to their place? Can Sonya protect her sisters from this mysterious man or will she fall for him, too?

Find out if the Paraiso sisters will let secrets, resentment and jealousy completely destroy their little piece of paradise.
