The birth of the stunningly beautiful Aurora Pabuena is shrouded in mystery, and her life becomes a confusing maze of inexplicable deception, jealousy and danger. Left on the steps of the Church of San Rafael de la Peña, the infant Aurora is found by and taken under the loving wing of the delightful Candelaria, who happily raises Aurora as her own. Aurora's real mother is Irene, who tragically sinks into a 20-year-old alcoholic haze after the newborn Aurora is taken from her. Irene's father, textile magnate Vicente, is responsible for the bastard child's disappearance, and his servant Elodia, the only one to know the truth, eventually blackmails him. Irene uncovers the plot and, upon discovering what happened to her child, rediscovers her own strength. The broken-down alcoholic emerges as a determined, powerful woman focused on one goal - finding Aurora.

Irene's nephews, the identical twins Diego and Rodrigo, are as different as night and day. They meet Aurora under amusing circumstances instigated by the lazy, disrespectful Rodrigo. Diego's goodness captivates Aurora, who immediately falls in love with him, but Rodrigo's crude playfulness soon turns dark and deceitful. A tragedy occurs, and Aurora is forced to escape to the city. Years of confusion and heartache follow, but the mystery begins to unravel once Aurora becomes a model for the "Carita Pintada" line of clothing that Irene has designed for Vicente's textile firm.

Aurora reunites with Diego, but all is not as it seems. What follows is a twisted web of obstacles that stands in the way of their happiness. By finally discovering her true identity, Aurora affirms the strength of an independent women who has the courage to follow their own heart. Supported by Candelaria's devotion, she reunites with Irene and is finally blessed with Diego's true love.
