But love has a funny way of turning one’s fate. His love for Lima-born Clara and their decision to start a family turn his life upside down. Suddenly he is confronted with the Herculean task of providing for a family outside the safe confines of his suburban roots, enmeshed in the tangle of Peru’s burgeoning but merciless economy.
