On a stormy night, Marina, the beautiful and seemingly lifeless baby, is born. The baby is delivered by Damiana, the village midwife, who a few hours before attended the birth of a healthy child, but unfortunately his mother did not survive. Since he married Prudencia, Marina's father Don Luis is determined to have a son because he wants an heir that transcends his illustrious surname Ocaranza.
Unfortunately, Prudencia is unable to get pregnant again, a situation that prompted her nanny Angustias to convince Damiana to help the family. Now, the baby who was left an orphan becomes Ocaranza Arzuaga's legitimate son. This is how Luis Alberto, Luis' great pride, grows in a golden cradle and travels abroad to study medicine.
Marina, miraculously survives and grows happy surrounded by nature next to Damiana, who teaches her to know the world in a different way, because she is blind. Marina's charm for her cheerful, fresh and independent attitude, conquers the love of those who know her.
The situation complicates when Luis Alberto and Marina meet and fall in love.
