Synopsis

When her father becomes gravely ill, beautiful Lena consents to a relationship with her boss Ernesto, a very wealthy, much-older man who pays for her father's hospitalization and provides her with a lavish lifestyle. But Lena's dream is to act, and soon she falls for the director of her first film - a project bankrolled by her husband to keep her near. Upon his discovery of the affair, Ernesto stops at nothing to ruin Lena's happiness.
