Valentina has a secret: she is La Catrina, the legendary figure who has come to symbolise the Mexican Day of the Dead. Her destiny is to guide lost souls to the Kingdom of the Dead. She cannot tell anybody about this, for a shadowy alliance is on the hunt for people with magical abilities. But at a Halloween party, of all places, Valentina transforms in front of everyone! She finds solace in the arms of Lili - a fateful meeting.
