In the end, Luna discovers the meaning of true love, and that a Curandera has no place in the modern world. But not before run-ins with her family, friends, neighbors, untamed horses, a chupacabra, vengeful fires, ghosts, an unlikely angel, famous handmade chocolates, a horde of winged demons, and a statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe with a blurred photo stuffed inside.
