Storyline

It begins in the middle 30's in a town near Bogotá, Colombia. Tomás Manrique, his wife Josefina and his little son Pedro, had to take a train and leave that town as soon as a war conflict started in the area. When they arrived to Bogota, a man called Pascual became their friend, and got a hotel for them to stay. When Tomás and Pascual got closer friends, Pascual robbed them. But when Tomás found it out, and went to reclaim his money, Pascual introduced him into an easy-life world, into dirty businesses and crime. In that very moment, Tomás damned the whole 5 next generations of the Manrique family. He damned them to suffer and made their lives a hell. Ten years later, Pedro met Marlene, a nurse, and fell in love with her. Pascual was having money troubles with Tomás, suspecting that he was taking advantages of their businesses and "gaining" more money than him, so he killed him. Pedro found this out, and killed Pascual the day of his own wedding with Marlene. But before Pascual died, ... Written by ivanreina

The best Colombian TV series ever
28 December 2005 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

I was born in Colombia and, honestly, the local TV series are bad (most of them). We got some success with comedies (like "Betty the ugly"). But the good drama finally arrives: La Saga is the best series done here ever. It has a very good story, surprises, good production, great cast... it really surprised me. I never believed that in our country we would make a production like this, but we did it and it was a success.

And, what is the best thing about this series? That it tells the story of a family through generations... that's great.

People in other countries (like in US) should consider to buy the plot and to produce it, according to the country. I really recommend La Saga.
