I don’t get the constant stereotype portrayed in Mexican/Puerto Rican inspired series on drug cartels but i’m not complaining when it comes to this series.
While living in the barrio of Jalisco, Mexico, poor Teresa Mendoza falls in love with a member of a successful drug cartel, hoping the love will help her rise above the hopelessness she feels in her life. When it doesn’t happen, she is forced to flee the country after her boyfriend is murdered. She seeks refuge in America, where she teams up with an unlikely person from her past to take down the leader of the drug ring that is after her. Teresa ends up starting her own drug empire, becoming one of the world’s wealthiest women in the process. With her success, she discovers that money doesn’t fix all of her problems, and she can only depend on herself if she wants to stay one step ahead of others and stay alive.
What’s not to love about this series you wonder? nothing. I’ve watched my fair share of drug cartel movies and series but this,there’s nothing like it. Strong characters, the action scenes are perfectly portrayed, the believable step-by-step story on Teresa’s inspiration to be the Queen Of the South, when she sees her future self who constantly inspires her to keep going,i should totally steal this page from her book. One word to describe this is simply MIND-BLOWING!
