The basis of the "Betty" story is nothing too complicated, it is about a young girl, fresh out of college that is struggling to find a job. She then applies to an assistant job completely irrelevent to the industry she wants to work in and is only hired because the womanizer boss needs to be kept in check and not fool around with the secretary. Little by little an attraction starts forming between the two and all the exterior appearance starts not weighing as much as the inner beauty that Betty has.
This same plot has been adapted into the different versions around the world and it has been a hit every time in countries like India, Mexico, Georgia, Russia, Greece, China, Spain, the United States and many more.
