Gloria is Luna’s mother, she is her only daughter and therefore, her reason for living, she does everything to ensure her daughter’s wellbeing.
Like everyone else at the Paraiso neighborhood, Gloria is a very humble woman, she lives in a small house with the necessary things to live, a house she shares with her daughter and with Wilson, her husband who isn’t Luna’s father. She is a kind woman and many, including Wilson, take advantage of her good heart.
She is a victim of her own beauty, because being so beautiful has brought her a lot of problems, in several occasions she has lost her job because her bosses have tried to sleep with her. But Gloria is the kind of woman who makes them respect her and has never yielded to her bosses’ demands, so she decides to quit or wait until she is fired before losing her dignity.
Currently, she works at a factory in the industrial zone of the city, she earns enough to maintain her home, her daughter and even Wilson, who never has money. When Luna tries to kill herself, they give her a license to solve her personal issues.
Her main goal in life revolves around Luna, without a doubt, when Gloria was younger she couldn’t go to college, so she works hard every day to help her daughter achieve what she couldn’t: going to college and become a great lawyer some day. Luna inherited her mother’s intelligence, beauty, dedication and modesty.
Blinded by the love she feels for Wilson, Gloria didn’t listen to her daughter the many times she told her that Wilson was a bad man, that he looked at her with a dirty mind or that she heard him talking to other women in the bathroom. This is why, when Luna arrives at the hospital, almost dead, Gloria starts suspecting of the man who was, to her, the love of her life; she sees him now with other eyes, she doesn’t want him around her or making love to him. All the love, fidelity and submission she used to live with, starts fading away.
Gloria finds, in Francisco, her guardian angel, a man who supports her from the moment her world starts crumbling down, he listens to her and worries about her. Gloria trusts him, he is her shoulder to cry on and the first person she looks for to talk, ask for advice or simply vent. Getting so close, it is inevitable for both of them to feel an attraction for each other.
