To have the last name San Miguel brings with it the weight of being a member of one of the most prestigious families, but above all of maintaining and image of rectitude and stature. The entire country knows of every move this family makes and is unmerciful when it comes to judging them. Facing problems and finding out all of the secrets the family hides are what they woman of the San Miguel family are up against. Teresa Tobón, lawyer. A woman of character, hard working and dutiful, she is not only this family’s matriarch, she is also the head of the San Miguel & San Miguel law firm, which was founded by her late husband Tito San Miguel and whom, it seems, took several secrets to the grave with him, along with the torment of knowing his son, Jose Luis San Miguel, dead fifteen years ago, had an illegitimate daughter. Now this woman struggles incessantly to maintain the good image of her husband and son, whatever it takes. Mercedes Romero, Teresa’s daughter in law, is also a lawyer as well as a San Miguel widow. She married Jose Luis San Miguel and ever since her husband was murdered, she has done nothing but mourn him loyally and assure everyone that he was the love of her life. At the beginning of this story, she, more than anyone, will feel the weight of society –and of her own conscience- on her shoulders as she discovers that everything she though she knew is a lie and that her husband left behind a history of infidelity along with an illegitimate daughter, Julie. Claudia is the daughter of Mercedes and Jose Luis, therefore Julie’s half-sister. These two women coincide in having the same father but are totally different in every other way. The discovery of Julie as another San Miguel will be the beginning of a war between these two women, Teresa’s preferences, Julie’s personality and above all, the love of the same man, will lead them to see each other as anything but sisters. That man is Alejandro Valencia, an intelligent lawyer and devoted humanitarian who will first find room in his heart for Julie before Claudia tries to clay her way in. There are no more widows in this family, but Claudia knows the feeling as her ex-husband, Carlos Morales, a politician unlike any other in the country, whom she loved and with whom she had a daughter named Victoria, told the nation he was gay. Her hopes died, her questions and uncertainties grew and at this moment, she has no other choice but to cling to the San Miguel and the love they offer her, and to hope –wrong as it may be- to find love again with Alejandro. Now, Teresa, widowed; Mercedes, knowing that her husband had a daughter out of wedlock; Claudia, divorced from a gay man; Vicky, with a lying, deadbeat boyfriend that is almost twice her age; and Julie, who just discovered she belongs to one of the wealthiest families, will have to join forces, not only to deal with their personal problems and conflicts, but with all of the labels society will pin on them because of the errors of the past that the San Miguel women are now forced to pay for. Lies, mistakes, betrayal… they may be a part of every family, but the women who belong to this one will be criticized, unjustly judged, all simply because they are the San Miguel.
