Second Chance is a story about a wealthy old man, Pedro José Donoso who lives in a big mansion with his daughter Angela and his servants. He falls in love with and marries a gorgeous younger woman, Isabel Arroyo.
He dies suddenly,and Isabel marries employee Andres Corona. But Pedro Jose Donoso returns to Earth through transmigration: (the passing of a soul into another body after death), in the body of Salvador Cerinza, a handsome (yet poor) family man. Salvador was actually a poor man who lived with his wife Cantalicia and son Moncho, but Pedro’s soul forced Salvador’s soul to leave Salvador’s body, although Salvador hadn’t died.
Pedro José searches for everything he lost, uncovering secrets, truths and deceptions.
Ultimately, he must set things straight and save those who truly loved him, and reclaim the heart of beautiful Isabel. Pedro changes his name to Salvador and enters his mansion as a poor driver. Isabel feels attractive and falls in love with him. Both have sex several times and secretly Isabel kills Andres and marries Salvador.
Pedro thinks that his death was not natural. He believes that Isabel killed him by giving him poison. Isabel did not give him poison in truth. When Isabel discovers that Salvador is Pedro, she asks him to forgive her and tells him the truth. Pedro and Isabel reunite and leave the mansion without informing anyone. However, Isabel’s Aunt, Miss Rebecca believes that Salvador might have taken Isabelle somewhere so that he can kill her and grab her wealth, so she and the butler, Walter, inform the police.
The police chase Pedro and Isabel. Isabel tells Pedro that she doesn’t want to be separated from him again, so she drives the car into a river.
Isabel dies, so Pedro’s soul also leaves his body. Both souls live together and rest in peace forever. Then, the real Salvador’s soul enters Salvador’s body again. Isabelle is buried with Pedro, and Salvador lives in Pedro’s mansion for six months, but keeps on irritating everyone.
Everyone finds out the truth about Pedro’s transmigration and everyone is happy that finally Isabelle and Pedro have reunited, but they want to get rid of the real Salvador as he was very dirty. Finally, they find Cantalicia and Moncho, and leave Salvador with him. Salvador becomes very happy. Also, Angela gives birth to a son whom they name Don Pedro.
