In her new high-drama and explosive comedy, Karen Zacarías
explores race, gender and class politics through the lens of the Latin American telenovela, one of the world’s most popular storytelling genres. On a stormy night in a Mexican hospital, two baby girls are born ― one into a life of privilege, the other to an impoverished family. But when the girls are deliberately swapped, the stage is set for two outrageous misfortunes to grow into one remarkable destiny. Destiny of Desire
is a smart, stylish and sexy comedy that dishes a lot of dirt and even more surprises.
