Julia lives in La Merced, with her adoptive mother Blanca, who works at a factory. Due to the pollution caused by the factory, Blanca contracts a serious disease. Before she dies, she gives Julia evidence of the factory´s culpability. At the beginning of the story, we find Julia taking this evidence to a lawyer to report the owners of the factory, but she is caught by some thugs and has to run away.
On her way to Buenos Aires, she runs into Tomas, a young priest who is returning to the city after being absent for four years.
Julia takes shelter in Saint Rose Convent, whose mother superior was a childhood friend of Blanca’s. Afraid that she may be caught, the mother superior makes her pretend to be a novice and rechristens her Hope.
Julia adapts to living with the nuns, without knowing that one of them, Sister Clara, is no other than her biological mother.
Tomas is reunited with his brother Maximo, who has taken charge of the family company after their parents’ accidental death.
When he hears his brother’s decision to withdraw the subsidy that his father used to pay for the maintenance of the convent, Tomas decides to oppose it and makes contact with the nuns, so he starts seeing Hope almost every day.
That is how the relationship and feelings between them grow. Since Hope is hiding and has assumed a false identity, she cannot tell him the truth. She is not a novice and has fallen madly in love with him. In turn, Tomas sees his religious calling waver.
