In the final stages of a once brilliant career matador Juan Silvera is blaimed for the horrific death of the number one matador in Mexico. He is shrouded in the shadow of mala suerte--an evil fate. No matador will ever work with him again. He meets the beautiful and wealthy Elena Castalon who becomes the love of his life. To stand beside the woman he loves, Juan must regain the stature he once held in the bullring. He gets one last chance, but Elena will leave him rather than see his return to the arena. In the last corrida of his life, Juan Silvera is spectacular until a breath of wind touches his cape. The cloth furls, exposing him to the most dangerous bull of his life. This is a story of the drama and color surrounding the ancient tradition of the corrida de toros, its life and loves--where fate is as elusive as a cape in the wind.
