For Nicolas, an attractive and modern entrepreneur, achieving success in business is everything. The feeling of ‘disconnect’ with his personal life, when he learns that his wife has decided to leave him for another man, makes this workaholic collapse – literally. When he opens his eyes at the hospital, the diagnosis is clear: Nicolas suffers from acute vertigo caused by stress. Given the situation, and in order to recover, Nicolas is forced to take a break and move with his children to his father’s ranch in his native town, where the challenge will not only be getting used to the quiet simple life; he will also have to build relationships with colorful local characters.
However, the quiet lifestyle will not only bring Nicolas back to life; it will make everything better and more fun. In this land, he’ll even find love, twice, while being caught in a love triangle between two powerful enemies in the region, the glamorous mayor, Carola Garcia del Rio, and a high ranking officer of the police force, Patricia Flores. Both women prove to be completely different, but have one thing in common: they are the antithesis of a city woman – what previously attracted Nicolas— and therefore the best candidates to win his heart.
