New York City 1968
A woman enters the headquarters of the UN one morning. She walks up to the UN's director of public information, pulls out a gun and calmly blows him away. She jumps through the now shattered seventh floor window into New York's East River and disappears beneath the surface of the murky water.
The only witness is a Cuban-American freelance journalist who is told that what he saw never occurred, but instead the senior official had committed suicide.
From there follows a story of murder, money laundering, corruption, witchcraft, sex and love spanning two decades. Sit back and be amazed.
