Synopsis

Pancho Duque is the family patriarch who has built himself a multi-million dollar sugar empire as a result of his hard work and efforts since arriving in the United States from Cuba.

The show chronicles the lives and internal power struggles of this powerful and wealthy Cuban-American family running an immensely successful rum and sugar cane business in Florida.

It is a lusty, bloody tale of sex, rum and good old fashioned (sibling) rivalry.

Featuring Emmy Award-winner Hector Elizondo as Pancho, the story focuses on the lucrative but questionable deal offered by his bitter adversaries, the Samuels.

He is faced with a difficult choice: should he cash out of the sugar business and focus solely on rum, which would please his biological son, Frank Duque? Or should he protect the family legacy that he built from the ground up by refusing to sell?

This would involve siding with his son-in-law, Alex Vega - who despises the Samuels and foresees multi-billion dollar profits from future ethanol contracts.

Alex's and Frank's approaches to business are as different as their approaches to life. While Frank focuses on chasing women, Alex is devoted to his beautiful wife, Isabel Vega.

Married to him when she was just 17 years old, Isabel chooses not to involve herself in the family business, focusing instead on raising their three children, who are determined to forge their own paths outside the family.

Will family allegiance come first or will their secrets and acrimonious conflicts over love, lust and money lead to their downfall?
