Maid in Manhattan
- Maid in Manhattan
For a woman who has spent all her life in a small town in Mexico, making her way to my New York means facing a new world.
With a couple of suitcases, the company of her young son Lalo, and a handful of bills in her pocket, Marisa Lujan decided to leave her town after armed groups arrived to take over the area. Without looking back, she made her way to New York, the grand metropolis. Thanks to the help of a friend, she slept on a couch while searching for employment. Those days were not easy; however, they were rewarding for a real-life heroine.
This determined and daring woman never gave up, and she remained strong until the day her luck changed. Marisa was hired as a maid in a prestigious hotel in Manhattan. Not only would this change her life, but also her heart’s fate.
Because of a small misunderstanding generated by her son Lalo, Marisa meets Cristobal Parker, a millionaire and successful young businessman, who mistakes her for an elegant hotel guest. The three enjoyed a very pleasant stroll through Central Park; and in less than two hours, Cristobal knew that Marisa is the woman of his dreams. This moment marks the beginning of this story in which two hearts will have to reveal their true identities in order to give way to love.
Marisa and Cristobal will have to face several obstacles. Marisa does not dare risk the balance she has created in life for both her and Lalo, especially for a man from another social class who she sees as an unattainable love. Cristobal carries the pressure of a political and corporate image that constantly reminds him of his social standing; and the obsession that Sara Montero has for Cristobal only adds to the complexities. She is a selfish and capricious woman who will do anything in order to win him over. Lastly, Victor Mendoza, Marisa’s former husband and father of Lalo, will reappear in their lives, demanding his rights with the intention of staying with the mother of his child.
This is how New York becomes the starting point of this story which promises to bring with it tears of joy and pain, with the hope that in the end, love will know how to overcome any obstacle.
