The story is centered on Aurora Ponce de Leon (Sara Maldonado), a beautiful young 20-year-old woman who falls madly in love with the charming Lorenzo (Jorge Luis Pila), and both share an intense attraction. Lorenzo already has a son namEd Martin, and Aurora loves him unconditionally. She becomes pregnant with Lorenzo's child, but is separated from Lorenzo when her parents learn about the pregnancy and send her abroad to have her baby. Lorenzo is unaware that he is the father of the baby and believing that Aurora left voluntarily, decides to try to get on with his life. Shortly after the baby's birth, Aurora is diagnosed with an incurable disease. Her father, Gustavo (Braulio Castillo), is a renowned scientist and physician and an expert in the field of cryogenics. He decides to freeze her body until the day that science has advanced far enough to find a cure for her disease.
Fast forward 20 years and it's time to unfreeze Aurora's body. Two decades have passed, and life has changed around her while she was "sleeping." Her best friend, Natalia (Sandra Destenave), is now married to Lorenzo, Aurora's only true love, and more incredibly, Blanca (Lisette Morelos), who does not know that she is Aurora's daughter, looks her mother's age and will struggle to accept Aurora. Further complicating matters for Aurora, she encounters the now-grown Martin (Eugenio Siller), who has the same spark and charm that she loved about Lorenzo. How will Aurora face her new life when a love from the past and a new one from the present become rivals for her love?
