Synopsis

Oscar is an extroverted taxi driver, he is a good man who worries about others, but has one weakness: he loves to party. The story starts when Oscar offers to take Jessica to work, she accepts without reservations and only out of interest. On the way, Jessica talks about her dream of living in a luxurious apartment and he boastfully tells her that when he wins the lottery, he’ll buy her an apartment and will ask her to marry him. Jessica laughs at him, but in order to show he is serious, he stops to buy a lottery ticket. Oscar is determined to win her over because he thinks Jessica is a good and decent woman to start a family with. However, he doesn’t know that she is Rodolfo’s lover, her boss at the real-estate agency where she works. Furthermore, Rodolfo is Tatiana Gomez’s boyfriend, a beautiful, intelligent and rich woman. Tatiana and Rodolfo’s relationship goes through a difficult moment, because instead of asking her to marry him, he asks her to be business partners and Tatiana feels disappointed. While Oscar tries to make up for the money he lost in the lottery ticket, he reserves a fare and picks Tatiana up, who is headed towards the cemetery. In the taxi, Tatiana fights with Rodolfo and ends their relationship. Oscar leaves Tatiana in the cemetery and when she arrives at grave, she is surprised that no one is there, but she is even more surprised when Oscar offers to stay with her and pray together. She is so sad, she asks Oscar to drive around the city for a few hours, to run away from her problems. Oscar takes her for a drink and from that moment on, a strong attraction forms between them, despite their social differences. Oscar finally takes her home, rather drunk. When they arrive, they meet Rodolfo and the owners of the Fountainbleau, the building she lives in and whose board she is the president of. That same night, Oscar wins the lottery and celebrates with a great party. The neighbors let this one go because they see him as a gold mine. Suddenly, Jessica pays attention to him and reminds him of the promise he made her. A few days later, Oscar is in the real-estate agency where Tatiana works, closing the deal on the apartment his mother Ms. Ruca had started, to secure he invested his money wisely. This is how Tatiana and Oscar end up living in front of each other in the same building, the Fountainbleau. Oscar’s arrival will transform the building and will make him and Tatiana get closer. However, there will be conflicts between them, due to Oscar’s rowdy behavior and the constant problems generated with the rest of the neighbors. Only Almita’s arrival, Oscar’s younger sister, will show that in spite of everything, they are made for each other.
