The turbulent life story of Flor de Oro Trujillo, the eldest child of one of the world's most brutal dictators.

Flor de Oro was born in 1915 in San Cristóbal, Dominican Repulic. Her father rose from small-time gangster to dictator and ruthlessly ruled the country for three decades until his assassination in 1961.

El Jefe controlled his daughter with the same tight grip with which he ruled the country. It is a toxic love and Flor will fight all her life to free herself from her father's yoke. A father she both loves and loathes. Flor's journey includes nine marriages and many exiles which take her to France, Nazi Germany, and the United States.

Flor's life is a story of abuse, and struggles, and mistakes. It is a life story worthy of a novel.
