Description

Two years after her father's brutal murder, Veronica returns to her hometown to decide whether to sell her family's coffee farm. In her abandoned home she stumbles upon her teen journal whose entries rekindle memories of crucial events in her life, in particular the arrival of her young illegitimate half-brother, thrust on her father by his grandmother, a poor villager. This trauma changes her, and links her family to Jaime, the man who later becomes the town's corrupt mayor. Jaime, born into the lower class, turns to illegal activities to break the inevitable cycle of poverty. Yearning for respectability, he is determined to have Veronica's farm by any means possible. During the years she lived away, memories of her country faded: the haunting landscapes, the beauty of the coffee farm, traditions. After her return she discovers, despite corruption, violence, and organized crime, a sense of belonging not experienced elsewhere.
