Sixteen-year-old Juana Perez Daniela Alvarado is a bright student with a scholarship to study journalism in the United States. However, she gets pregnant by artificial insemination due to a hospital error when she goes for a checkup. The father of the baby is discovered to be Mauricio de la Vega Ricardo Alamo, the owner of a fashion magazine called Positivo. Years ago, Mauricio suffered from a chronic illness and after recovering, he had his semen stored in order to fulfil his dreams of having a child with his wife Carlota Vivas Roxana Diaz.
