Leandra, the niece of a prostitute, becomes part of the domestic staff of a millionaire from Madrid who is a member of the divine left that secretly controls the country’s policy and economy. He lives with his three grandsons, whose mother abandoned them to go off to live in the United States and whose father is a Venezuelan who has been repudiated by his family. One day, the family doctor tells the millionaire that there are signs of him being poisoned with arsenic, and the old man immediately suspects the three bloodsuckers that live with him. So, he sets off for Switzerland to visit the best toxicologist, accompanied by his butler and Oscar, a spy that protects him.
During the return flight he dies. But, just before, he dictates his will to the captain and the flight attendants. And here comes the surprise: he leaves the shipping company to his three grandsons, in reality an empty company that is the cover for the real lucrative business, the vice ring. And the old man’s whole fortune goes to Leandra. The grandsons, the Fozs, put pressure on a friend of theirs, a judge, to try to accuse her of murder, especially after learning that she is the illegitimate daughter Manuel had with Lilí, the prostitute, the only woman he ever loved.


Leandra, sobrina de una prostituta entra al servicio de un millonario madrileño de la izquierda divina que mueve en secreto los hilos políticos y económicos del país. En esa casa viven su tres nietos cuya madre les abandonó para ir a vivir a EEUU y cuyo padre es un venezolano repudiado por la familia. El viejo sospecha de estas tres sanguijuelas cuando el médico le comunica que hay indicios de envenenamiento progresivo con arsénico. Viaja a Suiza, siempre en compañía del mayordomo y Óscar, un espía que vela por su seguridad, para que le visite el mejor toxicólogo. En el vuelo de vuelta muere, no sin antes dictar un testamento al capitán y a las azafatas. La sorpresa: a los nietos les deja el naviero, empresa vacía que sirve de tapadera para los verdaderos beneficios, la red de prostitución. Y la fortuna la hereda por completo Leandra. Los Foz presionan a un juez amigo para que declare a la sirvienta culpable de asesinato, sobretodo después de saber que es la hija que Manuel tuvo ilegítimamente con Lilí, la prostituta, la única mujer que amó en su vida.
