Raquel, 42, has worked for years as a maid for the wealthy Valdes family, and despite having a sullen and introverted character, now feels part of the family. The trouble starts when Pilar hires Asuma as a second maid to help her. Feeling threatened, Raquel drives the new arrival away by being as unpleasant as possible.

Raquel often experiences terrible headaches that come on quickly. One day as she's serving breakfast, Raquel loses consciousness. While the longtime maid is recovering, Pilar hires Lucy, a friendly country girl. Lucy gets along very well with the whole family, and Raquel sees her as the worst threat she's ever faced.
