Sunita’s father surprises her with a very special job that he found for her in California through a colleague. Traveling to the United States has been the dream of her life. The company has given her a few months to prepare and improve her English language skills. Therefore, she goes back to the University of Madrid to study the English language. While at the University, Sunita unwittingly meets her Prince Charming - Ronnie Waddell. An architect by profession, Ronnie was born in Chicago and is completing his Master’s Degree in Madrid.
They fall madly in love with each other but, in the end, Sunita knows that she cannot change the course of her destiny and is obligated to keep her promise of working in California. So, painfully, she is separated from Ronnie and travels to Los Angeles to start her new career and a new life.
Years later and by incredible coincidence and circumstances, destiny unites Sunita and Ronnie again. Their love and desire are as alive and as passionate as when they first met. Together, they strive with all their might to never be separated, but destiny divides them again. In despair and not knowing what has become of Ronnie, she finds comfort and solace writing about the life she had once with him. Sunita writes of her life, her passions, joys, and despair in a book, and with the help of a neighbor, the book makes her rich and famous.
Meanwhile, Ronnie has been living a life of silence and oblivion in Chicago, trying to overcome his destroyed emotional state. One day, out of curiosity, he discovers information about Sunita and her book. Ronnie devours the book. Every word he reads is like an arrow plunging into his heart and bolts of lightning shooting through his mind. The memories become vivid and consume him with grief and loss.
Ronnie seeks her out in desperation and, when he finally finds her, Sunita’s circumstances are very different. This encounter is brutal and unexpected. Sunita finds it very difficult as her fragile emotions had been destroyed over the years. She had not known how to manage her despair and loss. Helped by friends, family, and professional assistance, Sunita gathered enough strength to forget, overcome, and confront the situation.
