Season 1 of Queen of the South is the chronicle of the rise to power of a Mexican woman within the world of international drug trafficking.
Teresa Mendoza begins her adventure as a humble young woman in love with a pilot employed by the Mexican cartels.
When they execute her boyfriend, Teresa flees, desperate to avoid the same fate. Her escape takes her to the south of Spain where she tries to start a new life.
However, she is once again immersed in the world of narcotics trafficking, and for a second time, she suffers the death of a beloved man.
After several blows, Teresa decides to take the reins of her destiny and becomes the head of her own organization.
This was done with the help of a woman she met in prison, who decided to share her fortune with Teresa.
Through building strategic alliances and a strong sense for business, Teresa “La Mexicana” begins to control an intercontinental drug distribution business.
However, her great success is accompanied by a high personal price, and Teresa’s happiness and heart are tested.

😍😍 it is!
I haven’t had the time to watch anything for awhile. I sat down tonight and turned on the tv! It’s a good way to relax.
part of my childhood is watching mexican Telenovelas, What i love most about it? They promote Women empowerment with sense of self-worth, the ability to determine their own choices, and their right to influence others.
Sounds like a fun and action packed series. I need to watch this soon. I will stream it on weekends.
Well, this seems interesting! I will look for this one! Thanks for the review!
