A lot has changed since Jake disappeared from Madeline’s life without an explanation. Jake works for the Trump campaign, and Madeline’s a corporate lawyer who called in sick the day after the 2016 election. When Madeline is sent by her boss to make sure nothing goes wrong at the Trump rally at the company’s new arena, she’s not expecting Jake to show up, or be on the side of her political enemy. Can Jake convince Madeline that he never stopped loving her? Even more, can he show her that political differences disappear between the sheets?
Adela is an immigration judge from one of San Diego’s wealthiest Mexican-American families. She was raised to believe she has nothing in common with the asylum seekers in her courtroom. Paul left behind his life as a Manhattan lawyer to volunteer at the border. He has lost faith in the system, but not those who still turn to it for justice. Adela and Paul come to the Tijuana/San Diego border searching, but neither one knowing exactly what for—until they find each other. Against the backdrop of the “Remain in Mexico” policy and restrictions on asylum, Adela and Paul fight for love in a system that seems determined to destroy it.
“Even when we are most divided, a happily ever after is always possible if we open our hearts to love.”
