TIME: The present.
PLACE: A fictitious Island in the Caribbean named “HERENCIA”. It is the Spanish word for “INHERITANCE”.
Miguel Gutierrez is living in the United States when he is suddenly called back to his Island home of “Herencia”.
He assumes that it has something to do with the health of his beloved 96 year old Grandfather. He is totally surprised, however, when his Grandfather greets him, in good health, and instead informs him that it has recently been found out that his parent’s death, when he was just a boy, was in fact murder and now Miguel himself is in danger.
It seems there are still deep seated bitter feelings over the island’s history which began under slavery and the evil Kofi Luma decides to make use of these tensions to promote his own agenda as he takes his son, Vega, down his dark path with him. His goal is to take control of the island and to do so he must assassinate Miguel before he can produce an heir.
But, Miguel reveals his own surprise when he announces that he is planning to marry the beautiful Naya, herself a descendant of the island’s slaves.
And the whole thing is being watched over by the ghost of the island’s ancestor, Pedro Gutierrez himself.
As the controversy continues to unfold, there are intermittent scenes that have different characters playing out both sides of the conflict as if in the mental combat of a chess game.
The arguments are made, raw feelings are laid out and cruel secrets are revealed in the process as the real truth about Kofi Luma finally rises to the surface.
Casual island dress. They dress up for the wedding.
