Cheating is always a bad idea. But with the President of the United States?

After fleeing Cuba in 1959 Magdalena works as a waitress in a diner trying to support her sick father. One day Angel Macheda walks back into her life and offers her a way out. Does she take the money and take the fine life, for her father’s sake, for her own - or hold out for an impossible dream?

Miami, 1961. When Angel Macheda walks back into her life, Magdalena doesn’t have to struggle anymore. He pays her father’s medical bills and shows her the high life. But when her father dies, does she continue her life as his mistress - or follow her own dream?

She goes to Hollywood and finds everything she ever dreamed. She even finds Reyes Garcia once more - and for one crowded hour everything is perfect.

But love is dangerous. Magdalena has always told herself that she is looking for love. But there’s a difference between dreaming about what you want and getting it.

From Jack Kennedy’s Malibu hideaway, from the Hollywood of Monroe and Sinatra, Magdalena experiences the highs and lows of chasing her dream of being a star. But even Camelot has a dark underbelly, and when the White House and the Mob clash, she is caught in the fallout.

In the tradition of Casablanca and Gone With the Wind, the story of Magdalena Fuentes and Reyes Garcia is a sprawling epic of passion and destiny, stretching across three decades and two continents.
