She is a tireless worker, a fighter and a responsible woman. She doesn´t believe in love because her relationship with Rogelio, Alberto's father, left her marked forever. Now she lives, breathes and dies for her son, which is the best thing that could´ve happened to her. Life for her has not been easy, but she knows how to boost those few moments of happiness so that they last longer and bring out a smile. She has always faced and confronted difculties. She is not a sad or depressed woman.
A beautiful young woman with a spectacular figure. She is part of the high society of Cali. She is arrogant and sure of herself, specially when it comes to showing her dancing and her talent. She loves urban, street, experimental, rumba and nighttime dancing, but her parents cannot know this. That's why Sandra dances ballet, jazz and contemporary dance by day, but at night, she escapes to one of the most exclusive clubs in Cali to dance disco with her friends. There, she meets Alberto, ignoring him at rst, but with whom she will get together because of the passion they both share for dancing, creating a mutual admiration for what the other one does.
Dark skinned tall, thin, lanky, with an afro hairstyle. Very elegant in his way of dressing his bell-bottom pants and bright shirts with bright colors. He is a professional dancer. That's how he makes a living, in the bohemian clubs, alcohol, women and the nightlife. His house is full of music, women and liquor. Strangely and despite that environment, when he meets Alberto, there is a wonderful connection. He feels like he can be the mentor the boy needs. And in every advice he gives him, he is thinking about a better life for the child, the young man and the man he sees growing up through the years.
Young man from a rich family of Cali. Ronnie has the gift of business and money. Any situation has a commercial potential and he knows what it is and exploits it. He wears always the latest fashion. He knows music, movies, and clothing. He becomes the best manager that Alberto could ever nd. He has everything, money, a house, a maid at his service, but his parents are never with him, and as his loneliness grows, Ronnie nds in alcohol a good companion for his situation, from which it will be very difcult to get out.
He is a very affectionate young man. With light eyes, white complexion, angelic face, innocent smile and delicate hands.
He has always been away from his classmates because he doesn´t feel comfortable with them. He has a large collection of dolls. He loves to change the designs of his clothes, his uniform and his clothes always transform him. Juan will gradually discover that, within this well-placed and kind young man, there is a woman who has always been there and wants to live. This confronts his parents to
the point of having to run away from home.
He has a great heart and noble character. He is strict and very conservative. Don Carlos boasts of the business he has built over the years. For him, this is his greatest reason for pride. He sees Gloria as a woman in need and that is why he always tries to help her. He knows that she is young and
requires guidance, so, from his age he tries to show her the way. He has always been in love with her, but he isn´t able to express to her his love.
