About Destiny of Desire
Burning passion, cunning deception, and outrageous melodrama combine in this enormously entertaining homage to Latin American soap operas. A storm brews in the small town of Bellarica, Mexico, when two baby girls are born on the same night in the same hospital. Yet the drama is bound to unfold when a former beauty queen switches the babies at birth in her lust for power.
Destiny of Desire is suitable for adults and older teenage audiences. This Latin-American melodrama features everything there is to love about soap operas: forbidden romance, sexual content, plenty of plotting and scheming, and moments of overly dramatic violence.
