Synopsis - Part 1
Set in New York City, the story begins in 1990 with a 19-year-old dancer named Aurora Ponce de León (Sara Maldonado). She attends New York School of the Arts with her two best friends, Natalia Suarez (Talina Duclaud) and Vanessa Miller (Vanessa Pose). One night after a dance rehearsal, they all go to a bar, where Aurora meets Lorenzo Lobos (Eugenio Siller), a dance instructor and single father. Aurora and Lorenzo fall madly in love. Vanessa, who had always been jealous of Aurora, is infuriated by this because she too is in love with Lorenzo. She tried everything to separate the two, going as far as inviting Lorenzo to Aurora's lavish twentieth birthday party (Lorenzo was unaware Aurora was wealthy), where she makes sure he sees Federico Álvarez de Toledo kiss Aurora. Lorenzo storms off, believing he has been betrayed. Aurora runs after Lorenzo and declares her love for him. It doesn't work and Lorenzo wants nothing more to do with Aurora. Aurora returns home heartbroken and after an argument with her father, Gustavo (Braulio Castillo), she faints. Gustavo takes her to his cryogenic clinic to run tests. It is discovered that Aurora is pregnant with Lorenzo's baby. Her father refuses to tell Lorenzo about the pregnancy and sends her as far away from him as possible. A few months pass and Aurora trys to run away and return to Lorenzo, but she falls and goes into labor. She gives birth to a girl, who she names Blanca. Aurora becomes very ill and on her deathbed, calls Lorenzo, and says to him with her dying breath, "I will always love you." Lorenzo hears a flat line and all the commotion. Gustavo decides to freeze Aurora in a cryogenic capsule.
Twenty years pass. Lorenzo (now played by Jorge Luis Pila) has been married to Natalia (now played by Sandra Destenave) for fifteen years. Along with Lorenzo's son, Martín (Eugenio Siller), and Natalia's daughter, Nina (Talina Duclaud), they have also adopted a son, Cesar (Pablo Azar). Lorenzo is content with his wife and children, but Aurora is always in the back of his mind. Gustavo decides to reanimate Aurora without permission from the medical board in his clinic. When she wakes up, she meets Martín, who looks exactly like Lorenzo did twenty years ago. Martín falls instantly in love with Aurora. Aurora escapes the clinic and runs to see her true love, Lorenzo, only to find out he is now married to her childhood best friend. Later, Lorenzo visits Aurora in the clinic. Lorenzo runs after her, but loses her. Blanca (Lisette Morelos), Aurora and Lorenzo's daughter, was raised believing she is Aurora's sister. Ines and Gustavo lie to Blanca that the girl she saw is Aurora's daughter, who is also named Aurora. Martin tells his father the same thing. Both men are confused, as the mother and daughter look identical, because they are actually one and the same. Aurora later moves back home with her parents and Blanca, wondering what will happen with her life.
Aurora takes on two identities, her true self, Aurora Ponce de León, and "Aurora Álvarez de Toledo" (nicknamed "Aurorita"), the daughter she supposedly had with Federico Álvarez de Toledo (Ismael la Rosa). Lorenzo at first believes that "Aurorita" could be his daughter but "Aurorita" proves this is not true by seducing him. Aurora is forced to tell Blanca that Lorenzo is her father after Blanca starts developing feelings for Martín, her half-brother. Aurora is hypnotized and manipulated by Elizabeth (Mónica Franco), her stepmother, into starting a relationship with Martín as "Aurorita." Going back and forth between her two identities and having relationships with both Lorenzo and Martín proves to much for Aurora to handle and she begins to believe she actually is "Aurorita." Eventually, Aurora confesses to everyone, except Martín, that there is only one Aurora. Lorenzo tells Martín that "Aurorita" died so he is not hurt by all the lies, but Vanessa Miller (now played by Aylin Mujica) tells Martín the truth. Martín is furious that he was lied to by the people he loved the most and declares he wants nothing to do with Aurora. Lorenzo and Aurora decide to live together with Blanca so they can be family, but decide it's best not to have a relationship since they don't want to hurt Martín.
