Through My Window starts with our female protagonist Raquel in her classroom refusing to read out her assignment because she doesn’t think it’s good enough. But she is a good writer, the movie makes it clear.
So this establishes Raquel as a nerdy girl with a knack for writing, therefore is a character of substance the audience is supposed to root for. She then talks about her humble abode which is overshadowed by an empire standing next to it, which belongs to the Hidalgos.
The Hidalgos are the rich next door who are the owners of one of the most influential companies in the country Alpha 3.
Raquel is unhealthily obsessed with one of them, Ares. Ares is a typical rich bad boy. He is a devilishly handsome one named after the Greek God of Courage and War.
He has very masculine energy as evidenced by his womanizing ways and no emotions to spare for the women he sleeps with. And he has his eyes for his next conquest, Raquel who he knows lusts after him.
So, there he goes hacking into Raquel’s computer and cracking the Wi-Fi password to give the lovelorn Raquel an open as an excuse to talk with him. And there naive and vulnerable Raquel goes taking the bait and confronting him strictly for Wifi purposes.
From then starts seemingly never-ending mind games, both of them seducing and teasing each other leaving everything to be just desired more to no end. But lustlorn Raquel finally gives in and ends up having sex with Ares on his pool table.
Raquel who had planned to make Ares fall in love with her is in for a rude awakening when she realizes that sex was not the end for her as Ares is nonchalant and indifferent about all of it. This is what the story is about.
A good girl falling for the bad guy and the bad guy not reciprocating. But as it was established that Raquel is a different kind of girl so, Ares ends up falling for her as Raquel planned.
The girl falling for a guy and the guy not falling back for her and then the guy falling for her seems kind of bland. So, next Ares passes the torch of the bad guy to his family that does not accept their love because of how Raquel is not as rich as them.
Now, we have a conflicting love story followed by conflicts due to love.
Through My Window is currently streaming on Netflix.
