Milaflores has always felt a sense of emptiness. When her single mother was raising her, the girl was curious about who her father was and why he didn’t want to see her. To protect the child, Milaflores’ mother said she was the result of an affair she had in Panama. But as an adult caring for her sick mother in Chicago, Milaflores learns this was the exact opposite of the truth. On a quest to find her father, Milaflores returns to Panama, bracing herself for a clash of cultures and emotions over a man she’s never known.
