As this happened, Fe tries to break away from the abusive relationship and finds refuge in the arms of another man, Arturo, who happens to be her former suitor. But Arturo is also married and due to his obligations to his own family, he cannot elope and with Fe. When the men in her real life cannot live up to her needs, she turns to a mysterious suitor who offers her the fantasy of an escape.
