This is the story of Helena Vargas, a Colombian singer who longed to be free during a terribly machista time (the fifties), when women had more duties than rights and were expected to be only wives and mothers. Helena found in music a way to express her deep desire for freedom, overcoming all obstacles in a prejudiced society, beginning with her family. This music after years of struggle, would bring her success, but was also the origin of the worst humiliations.
