A little summary of the story...
The Russo's & the Gonzalez hate each other. They have never and will never like or even tolerate each other. Why? because the Russo's wanted to be the strongest mafia in Europe since the Martinez retired, making the Gonzalez's the strongest.
Not accepting being the second strongest, the Russo's started attacking the Gonzalez's in numerous ways, like stealing their shipments, killing their men when they see them, making false accusations, and that made the Gonzalez's furious.
So basically, because of power, these two mafia families hate each other, or should I say, the Italian mafia hate the Spanish mafia because of power.
Now, let's talk about Leila Russo, previously Leila Romano. She married Giovanni 5 years ago, when she was 20. A young stupid girl married a guy in his early 30's because she thought she loved him. She didn't know his true colors until after marriage. The first 2 years he didn't lay a hand on her, but after that, everything turned bad. After the retirement of the Martinez Mafia, The Gonzalez's became the strongest mafia in Europe. Giovanni didn't accept that and every night he comes home hitting Leila because he is simply angry and everything he does, does not work.
Leila tried to escape but every time Giovanni catches her and give her a punishment that would make her forget to ever escape. She tried to escape twice but failed, but what do they say? The third time's a charm.
She decides to escape the Devil's layer with the help of man that she will forever be grateful for. This man works for the Russo's and they trust him deeply. He couldn't accept what was happening to Leila and decides to help her escape. He even took the divorce papers from Leila and gave them to Giovanni telling him that they are related to work and needs to be signed. Leila knew that Giovanni trusts Alberto a lot and she knew that her husband doesn't read documents from people he trusts.
She knows that Alberto is somewhat scarifying his life for hers, but she promised him safety when she gets it.
She always knew that the Gonzalez's were her husband's enemies and she wanted revenge. She hates her husband with passion and all the love she had for him turned to hate.
She always thought that the Gonzalez's lived in Spain, but when she did research, she discovered that they live in New York.
She books a ticket and travels to New York to seek refuge from the Gonzalez's hoping they would let her in.
