Though Lourdes actions left Enrique bitter of her abandonment, his own actions are much the same. Enrique abandons María Isabel, his girlfriend, who is pregnant with their child. This theme of abandonment comes full circle when Enrique and María Isabel leave their daughter in Honduras while they create a new life together in the United States. Enrique's greatest hope is that he can bring his daughter to him and not prove guilty of the same offenses that corrupted him in his youth.
