This is the extraordinary story of a free-spirited girl from Sydney’s northern beaches who was catapulted into the middle of a European cocaine ring on her first day in Paris. A dancer with the Moulin Rouge, her life changed irrevocably the moment she met Daniel, a handsome and charismatic Colombian. Drawn together by an irresistible chemistry, a trusting and naive Robyn takes Daniel at his word.

But he is not, as first thought, a photographer for the Nikon Gallery. While living an exotic and exciting life in Paris, partying with the beau monde, Robyn is unwittingly drawn in to the cut-throat dealings of Daniel’s Colombian drug syndicate. Her innocence is shattered and out of the uncertainty, violence and drama of this world, she finds strength to reclaim her own life and that of the son she had with Daniel.
