Plot Synopsis

Set in Madrid during 1928, this one-hour, Spanish-language, period drama series centers on the national telephone company, which opens its headquarters in the city center where hundreds of girls queue up to get a job as a "cable girl" in the only place that represents progress and modernity for women at the time. Four girls -- Lida. Marga, Carlota and Angeles -- coming from very different backgrounds, start work as operators. From that day on, jealousy, envy and betrayal get mixed up with the hunger for success, friendship and love.
