Adolsy

Adolfo Quijano performs magic for the rich and famous, particularly the criminal elite. However, he has a secret:

he evenly splits his time in another body. That body is Dolsy Ernez, a lesbian in a distant city with a stable relationship.

And then, of course, something goes wrong. Adolfo seizures and possibly dies, leading his goons to investigate Dolsy.

The secret is out, and now Dolsy and Adolfo find themselves caught between who they are and who they should be.
