Synopsis

Three girls named miracles are born the same day but in very different and distant homes, but united by a terrible fate that announces their death at the time that the three meet each other and find love.
Neither the three girls nor Fernando Rendón, the man who these three girls love, know the destiny that unites them. The girls are growing their own way, but with a common factor: the violence that accompanies their lives.
MIRACLES FONTANARROSAgrows in a wealthy but at the same time hostile environment. She is a beautiful young woman, who becomes addicted to gambling and adrenaline. Snowy, as she is affectionately called is involved in all types of competitions, from beauty pageants where she is more interested in gambling than in anything else, to illegal horse races where she, as a rider, is capable of doing more tramps and beat the best runners. With Marcelo, his companion of evil acts and Fernando Rendon they form a trio to live to the extreme.
MIRACLES RENDÓN, by contrast, she grows in a happy home with parents who gave her and her twin brother, Salvador, all their love. The day she turned 15 years old, Tommy, her father confronts her youngest brother. He is then accused by his father of bad money driving and disrespecting his house. The situation is worst due to Salvador’s addiction to drugs. This situation gives Miracles Rendon, the motivation to become the best cop in the city. Milagros now wants to prosecute the crime and, in particular to whom she blamed for causing misery of his brother life.
The third one, MILAGROS CRUZ is called 'Nikita', she was educated in the school of the streets. Next to "Pevec" who teaches her to steal and deal with life on the streets, she forms a band of criminals and becomes feared in the neighborhood. 'Nikita' proves to be the best at dancing, singing and, above all, the more accurate when it comes to shooting, to the point that Fernando Rendón, even hired her as a hit woman. When 'Nikita' was living at her father’s and stepmother’s house she was forced to share a room with 'Disney', the stepson of his father who abused her as much as he could. 'Nikita' had to deal with humiliation and rape, but when Disney kills "Pevec", Nikita’s best friend, she goes from victim to victimizer and she will not rest until she finds Disney and makes him pay with his life for all the pain she had to go through because of him.
There have been several opportunities where the three Miracles are almost ready to meet and their proximity always causes an uncontrollable fact. Now it remains to be seen if the prophecy that says: "The day that the three Miracles and Love meet, they will die."

Some weeks later, she finds out that she is pregnant, and decides to have the baby as a single mother. Adelaida is born nine months later, but she suffers from a renal problem that has her near death. Pilar´s economical situation is scarce, and does not allow her to afford the surgery that will save her daughter´s life. Forced by the situation She looks for Sergio to help her, but she unexpectedly meets his mother: Eugenia Herrera de Gaviria.
Eugenia tells her lies about the location of her son, and rejects any kind of help for her, thinking that she is an opportunist. With no solution in sight, Pilar looks for Julián González, not knowing that he is in the drug-hauling-mule business. When she knows about his activity, she is desperate for not having found the money for her daughter´s surgery, so she decides to become a drug carrier. Carmela, Pilar’s sister, is now in charge of Adelaida. Pilar makes her believe that she got a new job in Mexico. When she arrives in this city, Elisa, her fellow traveler, dies when a cocaine capsule bursts in her stomach. That is the moment when Pilar confesses that she is also a drug-hauling mule while trying to save Elisa´s life.

In jail, Pilar is visited by Julián, who threatens her to talk her out of accusing the organization. Pilar accepts it only if he promises to save Adelaida but she does not know that Carmela located Sergio, and he is going to afford the surgery. Pilar hears that her daughter has been operated while she is in jail, and believing that this fact took place because of Julian’s promise, she pleads guilty. Pilar is sentenced to an eight- year prison term.

Sergio knows that Pilar´s daughter has nobody to take care of her, and he tells the truth to Cristina Cadena, his wife. Cristina forgives him and makes a promise to adopt Adelaida as her daughter; she baptizes the baby again, by the name of Paula, but she uses her father´s influences so that Pilar does not receive any news about this event; Pilar is clueless about her daughter´s life, and feels very shocked when she hears about Carmela´s death, who tried to denounce the mafia guys. Pilar faces the dangers of being in prison, and the idea of recovering her daughter becomes an obsession for her. Feeling frustrated for neither knowing how to figure out the legal notifications nor being able to write her petitions of right, Erika Sandoval, her public defender, supports her to study law so that she can reduce her sentence.

Time passes by, and when she is about to leave prison, Pilar knows that someone heard her call for help, aimed at recovering her daughter; it is Alex Avendaño, a law student who is committed with this quest, and is waiting for her to leave prison; nevertheless, when her prison term finishes and she is deported to Colombia, their first attempts are not fruitful, but Pilar is conscious that this mission will not be easy, just like she won´t quit her efforts to help other drug carriers, an idea she got after she heard many stories about Colombian women who were cheated, not being aware of the fact that they were carrying drugs.
Pilar insists on going on with this task, and asks Alex to accompany her. Alex likes this idea, not only because he will work on penal Law issues, but also because he feels strongly attracted by Pilar; on the other hand, Alex receives a job offer fromCadena y Asociados, the company where Sergio Gaviria works, the father of Pilar´s daughter. Pilar accompanies Alex to his job interview, and while she is in the waiting room, she sees Paula, her daughter, but she will find out about it later.
As of that moment, Pilar will have to fight to recuperate her daughter, confront Sergio and the feelings that he arouses in her and at the same time, struggle to defend those drug mules, victims of the drug dealers. In the meantime, the organization where Julian works plans how to push her aside of the way. Correo de Inocentes, a series that has lots of tension, suspense, nostalgia, and is loaded with drama, which provides a humane touch surrounded by the implacable justice principles.

He is a Singer in “La Protesta” music band, and is engaged with Adela, her girlfriend since he was an adolescent; but then, he meets Jackeline Ramón, daughter of a music- business entrepreneur in the Atlántico department, owner of Caribe Records. They experience love at first sight, and two days of passion surrounded by the fiesta environment.

Jackeline discovers the musical talent that Joe has, and promises him to help him make his dreams come true; what she cannot imagine is that Joe will find out about her origin due to the fact that Jacqueline’s father, Anibal Ramón, is looking for a singer to form a band, and is interested in hiring him. Everything seems to be fine, but Francisco shows up; he is Aníbal´s assistant and has always been in love with Jackeline; he feels really jealous, and has Joe sign an onerous contract. Under such contract, Joe is enslaved for life, and “Caribe Records” is left out of this business.

Fruko, director of Fruko & sus Tesos, wants Joe to work with him, and he realizes that the contract Joe had signed is burdensome. When Joe knows about this situation, he thinks that Jackeline is involved. In the meantime, Aníbal finds out about Francisco´s intentions, and he gets so upset that the situation affects his health. When Joe and Fruko approach him to talk about this issue, they do not know that Aníbal is having a heart attack that leads him to death.
