Luz de Maria’s dreams have been reduced to a notebook of newspaper clippings about famous artists and museum exhibits. She keeps it under the bed in the room she shares with the other maid who works for the wealthy Vega family in Mexico City. When Luz’s father died years ago, she became the family breadwinner. The job in Mexico City gives her every other weekend off and enough money to make ends meet at home, a 4 hour bus ride away. The thought of what might have been still hurts. As a maid, Luz is trapped on the lowest rung of Mexico’s social ladder. An untouchable. Dressed in her employer’s castoffs, she encounters Eduardo “Eddo” Cortez Castillo, a wealthy attorney and ex-cop secretly investigating links between Mexico’s powerful Minister for Public Security and a ruthless drug cartel leader. As they fall in love, neither Luz nor Eddo share the truth about themselves. It’s a mutual case of mistaken identity with far-reaching consequences. With presidential elections coming up, Eddo’s investigation is found out. Targeted by the cartel, Eddo is forced into the dark maze of Mexico’s drug culture where violence buys loyalty, votes are for sale, and the odds are against survival. Ruthlessly searching for Eddo’s weakness, the cartel finds Luz. Even if Luz and Eddo survive the cartel’s vengeance, they are from opposite ends of Mexican society. Are they brave enough to defy the country’s unspoken rules? Or is the price of their passion simply too high? It’s a Cinderella story, Mexico style.
