“They’re going to pay for this” are the words Alma repeats to herself over and over again like a mantra. One night. That’s all it took to lose it all. The second her mother kneeled in front of her Aunt Josefina and Uncle Carlos and begged for their compassion made Alma lose her innocence and her childhood dreams. But compassion was not forthcoming. After wrongfully accusing Alma’s father of pilfering from his jewellery business, Uncle Carlos threw him and his family out on the street. In anger, Alma utters her curse and a few minutes later, the only daughter of Uncle Carlos and Aunt Josefina, dies in the arms of her daughter, Daniela. Alma and her parent’s leave, but their car is run off the road in a storm and only Alma survives. Alone and shunned by her blood relatives, she ends up in an orphanage with only Gallo, a good friend of her late father’s, to turn to.

Soledad Burgos was born in the midst of adversity. The worst part was losing her sight at an early age. Accidentally, her disability provokes her older brother's death and the undaunted hate from a mother that keeps a secret. Life deprived Soledad from one of the most important senses, but in return it gave her a gift: she sings with the perfection that only the best singers in the world can achieve. But her gift is brutally restrained, hidden and emphatically denied by Delfina, her bitter and ambitious mother who does not forgive her for the death of her real son.SHARE: READ MORE July on Eva

A building, 6 apartments, a penthouse, a concierge and many stories of love... The daily lives of our characters intertwine forming the backbone of the building they live in. We will see how curious their private lives are, as we enter discreetly through the windows of their apartments and listen to their conversations through the walls.
We will share in their joys, sorrows, triumphs, failures, love, pains, and in both their distant and attainable dreams. One thing that we do know, but our characters do not, is that we are not the only ones anonymously prying in their lives. All of the neighbours are at the mercy of a psychopath who has hidden cameras in all the apartments. He discovers their most intimate secrets and hidden desires, giving him the power to manipulate them just as a puppeteer pulls the strings of his puppets, so that they can achieve their darkest economic and passionate motives.SHARE: READ MORE June on Eva

Lichita Gutiérrez is the most ignored and humiliated employee of Icónika, Latin America’s most important publicity agency, a company she joined as an assistant with the illusion of growing little by little, but the truth is that she has been stuck in the same position for years being a kind of ‘jack of all trades’. She has considered quitting several times, but she just can’t let her parents down. Even though she had all this load over her shoulders, Lichita let herself dream that someday her true love would come and save her from her dull existence.SHARE: READ MORE May on Eva April on Eva The Bold And The Beautiful on Eva January on Eva This Autumn on Eva PICK OF THE WEEK
