Based on the best-selling novel by Mario Vargas Llosa, this is the story of Urania Cabral (Isabella Rossellini), a beautiful, kind, intelligent, and independent Manhattan lawyer whom, after thirty years, returns to the Dominican Republic to face her ghosts and the horrifying circumstances that altered her life forever when she was a teenager, and Rafael Leonidas Trujillo (Tomas Milian) a.k.a El Chivo (The Goat) was the iron-handed ruler of this island paradise. After Urania faces her past, nothing in her present or future will ever be the same again.
