After publishing his book, he learns that bookstores in his native England can't get it off the shelves. However, the novel becomes a bestseller in Mexico after its translation into Spanish. Before Henry knows anything, he is on a flight to Mexico for a publicity tour set by his local publisher in Mexico, Pedro (Horacio Villalobos), along with the novel's translator Maria (Veronica Echegui).

But there is one hidden truth behind the book that Henry is unaware of. Maria rewrote his sexless novel into a passion-filled tome that resonates with many as it sets libidos racing nationwide. The truth however triggers arguments between the duo, but these exchanges eventually make them fall for each other. Maria is a single mother separated from her husband. The movie is given the right turn when her ex-husband Antonio (Horacio Garcia Rojas) suddenly wants his woman back.
