Storyline

"Rina" is a macabre telenovela that tells the rags to riches story of a poor hunchback and destitute girl who sells straw dolls in the street and eventually comes to inherit a large house and fortune. As the storyline progresses, it incorporates an occult theme. Rina sells dolls made of straws on the street to support her paraplegic father and younger brother and sister who attend school. One day she passes a house on the street owned by a rich man, Leopoldo, who sticks his head out the window and befriends Rina. Later, he manipulates her into marriage, although he is elderly and sick. Rafaela, Leopoldo's sinister and materialistic sister-in-law, wishes Leopoldo would die so she can inherit his fortune. Leopoldo, however, will have his revenge. Upon Leopoldo's suspicious death, it is learned during the reading of the will that Rina will inherit the house and all assets--but only if she agrees to live there. Rafaela will not inherit the house, but will be allowed to live there with her... Written by elwileycoyote@aol.com

Macabre telenovela that deals with the supernatural
21 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

"Rina" is the rags to riches story of a poor destitute street urchin who comes to inherit a fortune. One afternoon she has her fortune read via tarot cards, and is told she will become wealthy. However Rina sells straw dolls to support her paraplegic father and younger brother and sister who attend school, so she does not believe it. In fact, the entire family is on the verge of being evicted. One day Leopoldo, an elderly and sick man yells out the window to her and they become friends. Leopoldo lives with his sister-in-law, Rafaela and her son, Carlos Augusto. Rafaela hates Leopoldo, but Leopoldo plays a nasty trick on her, revealed upon his death. Rina is to inherit everything. Rafaela and her son come up with a scheme to retain the house: Carlos Augusto must marry Rina. But how will Carlos Augusto get Rina to fall in love and marry him? And will true love conquer all in the face of overwhelming adversity?

Remade with Thalia as "Maria Mercedes" (1992)and "Inocente de Ti"(2004)
