Amaranta feels very lonely among so much luxury. She is more interested in Isma, the mysterious and handsome bartender, than in Sergio, the boy whom her parents would like her to date. On top of it all, her grandfather, the founder of Bancomundo, reveals that he has carefully designed the rest of her life…
