Del Castillo, who is accompanied on this adventure by her inseparable colleagues Roxana Castellanos and Shaula Vega, embarks here on a journey through her life, from her birth, through her childhood (remembering her first love, her first disappointment … ) until his controversial meeting with drug trafficker Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán.
