"Las hijas del capitán" begins in 1936, when the small restaurant El Capitán is thriving -- until the accidental death of its owner, Emilio Arenas, forces his indomitable twenty-year-old daughters to take the reins of the business, while legal matters are settled in courts. Determined to survive and be independent, the temperamental Victoria, Mona, and Luz Arenas cross an ocean to make their way between skyscrapers, adversaries, and lovers, steadfast in their goal to turn a dream into reality. This work is tribute to women who persevere and survive the epic but uncertain journey of emigration.
