Margot, however, was arrested and detained for 24 hours in a Panamanian jail. Her protégé, Alexandro, liaises with the British Ambassador, who arranges her release with deportation to New York City. Will she ever see Tito, the love of her life again? Will he ever make her the First Lady of Panama? Will she ever dance again? Will “the Dance World” still love her? The stakes are high.
