Late 1960s. We meet three children: Enrique Florit, from Cuba, living in southern California with his flamboyant magician father ... Marta Claros, getting by in the slums of San Salvador, forced to leave school to help support her family, her beloved older brother having already left home ... Leila Rezvani, a well-to-do surgeon's daughter in Tehran, her mother concerned only with appearances, her father an often foolishly vocal opponent of the Shah. As we follow them across the next twenty years--the narrative moving among their lives--we see Enrique, a math whiz from a young age, sacrificing his dream of attending MIT to filial duty, and the dream of passionate love to the exigencies of reality.
