It all starts from the problem statement, when the main character has nothing to do with what will happen. It then start getting involved in different situations, such as addictions or physical or sexual abuse, which make different character close to the people realize that attitude is changing.
Some of these such people, being devout (a) to the Virgin of Guadalupe, asked to protect that person. At the same time, a white rose appear before an altar or statue of the Virgin belongs to the person who prayed and remain there during development of the story, which is usually when the problem is compounded. The fact that the rose appears gives the meaning of the petition has been heard.
At the climax of the story, which is the time where the main character is in a serious situation, the closest person "asked" intercedes for him and tries to help. Fixed issue, the main character is "fondled" by a wind that represents the act of the Virgin of Guadalupe, and since the end of the episode, the white rose disappears as one character narrates the own message of each chapter as a moral.
The show has been panned by Mexican viewers and critics for its lack of proper acting, writing, and directing. Some talk shows have criticized the corny effects and acting as well as the lack of research for episodes dealing with certain social groups or issues such as bullying, family problems, and even sexual abuse.
