Season 1:
High-profile architect Alexandra faces her worst nightmare when she gets a call from local cop Conrado to identify her husband Oscar's body, found on a pier in the beautiful Albufera landscape outside Valencia. Suicide? How can it be when they had made plans for their future just hours ago? But it only gets worse: Oscar had been leading a double life with another woman, Veronica. Who is this woman? Who was the man she loved for 15 years? And what happened that fatal night on the pier?

Taking on a false identity, Alex moves in with Veronica and, with Conrado's help, delves into the secrets Oscar kept, soon leading her to question who, in the enchanting remoteness of the Albufera, is friend, who is foe. Though Alex would love to hate Veronica, Alex discovers an alluring woman who leads a life so enticingly different from her own. But will the bond they forge over Oscar's death survive the moment when Alex must reveal her true identity? Or can an even closer bond develop giving the Alex and Veronica the strength to uncover the whole truth together?

Season 2:
When Alejandra unveils to Veronica that she is Oscar's widow, the confession threatens to shatter their newfound friendship. But they are both in too deep to turn back: They must find out what part Oscar's shady dealings played in his death and also how life can go on for themselves. Now that Alejandra understands that Oscar lead the double-life he did to tear down his inner walls, she resolves to embark on a similar journey of self-liberation. At the same time, Verónica must painfully ask herself how much she contributed to Oscar's ordeal. Together, the two women reach a new level of companionship and sense of family while delving ever further into the mystery behind Oscar's death.
