Storyline

Manolo has discovered in Lola not only the great artist that the public is captivated for but an obsession, a love that transcends the limits of reason and that will make him fall into disgrace. Following the success of their company, Lola is contracted to export flamenco art to the biggest cities in the world. The triumph of Lola finds his correspondence in Manolo's failure and addiction to alcohol. But the feeling that Manolo has left in Lola is so deep that she will return to Spain to be reunited with him again. Written by jsanchez
