Eduardo and Lucia Castellano are an ambitious powerful couple from Venezuela riding on the coattails of King Joseph Bonaparte’s blessing. Unfortunately, their partnership is soon found out by those aware that the king of Spain has ulterior motives, all stemming from a grudge he had with his predecessor, Ferdinand VII, over valuable pearls which he claims were stolen. While political antagonists seize the moment as an opportunity to sow discord and establish their independence, a power struggle ensues that will test not only loyalties to family and country but stir a potential bloodbath and overthrow of the government.
