Two sisters, Irene and Ana Elisa, confront a complex destiny that will take them on parallel paths in a prosperous and innocent country, ravaged by a history of dictatorships. At the beginning of the 1940s, Ana Elisa dreams of leaving her mark on history by building a house that will make her live forever. Due to that, she must convince an architect to come from the other side of the world to create a symbol of a love that is desperate to survive amidst the wretchedness and fear of a cruel time. Among all the grandiose and human characters that populate this dramatic chronicle, the Villa Diamante emerges as a monument to the mysterious and the impenetrable; a symbol of life.
