Storyline

Josefina and Antonio have reached a delicate economic balance after their marriage. His salary of attorney and her wages from the hospital allowing them to survive and fantasize about some whim. But the situation will be more complicated since Josephine is expecting a child. Anticipating the debacle that can mean having a "child who eats everything, even food," Josefina imparts to the baby, still in her womb, higher education courses in order to save some money in schools. Meanwhile, Antonio enters the underworld looking for customers to offer their services as a lawyer. Written by jsanchez
