I really liked this; waiting for season 2
18 November 2017 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

Mexican First Lady Emillia (Kate del Castillo) wants to divorce her husband, the President, Diego (Erik Hayser). During a brutal argument, Diego falls from the balcony, landing on top of a car and dying. Emillia goes on the run when she realizes she is being accused of her husband's murder. She needs to find the killer and exonerate herself. She winds up in the barrio Tepito, where she is not considered very popular.

Very exciting series with some wonderful performances, particularly by del Castillo in the workhorse role. Lots of great suspense and dramatic scenes as the actual story unfolds, far more complicated than Emillia could ever have imagined.

Emillia has two children; her daughter, Maria (Alicia Jaziz) is gay. I have no problem with that at all, but it was completely unnecessary to the plot. Eréndira Ibarra brings an elegance and coldness to the role of Ana Vargas-West. Both she and Erik Hayser were in the series Sense8. There are many striking performances, particularly from Aida Lopez, Alberto Guerra, and Tamara Mazarraza.

Looking forward to season 2.
