Her testimony would reopen one of the most important criminal cases in Colombian history.Loving Pablo, Hating Escobar tracks the birth and boom of the cocaine industry and follows Escobar's evolution from billionaire benefactor to ruthless terrorist, responsible for the historic tragedies that forever altered the course of the Colombia conflict and its relationship with the world.

Virginia Vallejo-Garcia is a Colombian author, journalist and media personality, and a political asylee in the United States of America since 2010. From 1972 to 1994, she was one of the leading television and radio hosts in her native country. In 2006, with her life at risk, the United States took her out of Colombia to testify in high profile criminal cases. Her memoir became the #1 bestselling book in Spanish in the United States, and her story has inspired a string of documentaries, soap operas, television serials such as Narcos, and upcoming film Loving Pablo starring Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem.
