A terrible tragedy puts an end to a group of friends' pleasure voyage. Maria hears a gunshot, and finds her friend Patricia dead, and, within her confusion, she picks up the gun. Maria is found guilty of murder and is sentenced to life in jail. Her husband, Esteban, an important business man, doesn't believe in her innocence. When he goes back to Mexico, he divorces her, buys the silence of everyone whom was with them on the trip, and tells his sons that their mother died in an accident. Twenty years later, Maria is put in liberty due to good conduct and goes back to Mexico in search of vengeance. She is decided to find out the real killer and upfront Esteban, whom she now hates because he abandoned her at her own risk. But what she most wishes is to have her son and daughter, Hector and Estrella, back. The first thing that Maria does when she arrives is that she cites everyone who was with her on the trip: Esteban; Servando, one of his associates; Demetrio, the company's lawyer; ...Written by
I watch at least one Mexican soap opera every year. This time I decided to see "La Madrastra" because it had a good cast (specially Jaqueline Andere, Cesar Evora and Ana Martin) and the plot seemed attractive. But ... what a disappointment!!! At the beginning, the story pretends to be somehow clever, but very very soon everything starts to fall short and it becomes too simplistic and ridiculous. After the first ten episodes I decided to watch it only once a week, but believe me, even that proved to be too much!! ... the same people are always having the same conversations and most of the characters have no credibility. If you know a little about Latin society/family you'd soon realize how poorly it's been adapted. Besides, the comedic characters are really stupid and unnecessary. I have to warn everybody: Try not to waste your time with this one!
