A sweet governess named Julia journeys to a remote section of Mexico where she is hired to take care of a rich man's young daughter, Silvia. As soon as she arrives at the mansion, Julia discovers that Silvia may have severe mental problems. However, she immediately jumps into her role and the bond between her and child grows stronger each day. However, the relationship between Silvia and her new stepmother has become very hostile and Julia hopelessly tries to mend this. Everyone in the house is disturbed over Silvia's affection for her best friend named Hugo, a boy no one has ever seen.
