A ONE-HOUR DRAMEDY:
Adapted by Gabriela Tagliavini. Based on the hit TV series “Mamá Mechona.” This is a format from Chile that has run 118 Episodes in El Salvador, Mexico, Ecuador, Malasia, Brunei, and Singapore.
Macarena Muñoz has happily devoted her life to her husband and children. But her husband is always busy with work, and her teenage kids like to avoid her. Consequently, she feels lonely and empty.
During a family beach vacation, Macarena runs into her high-school classmates. They are all successful in different fields of work. Macarena feels something is missing in her life – she lacks purpose.
When she goes for a swim and nearly drowns, she decides to change her life. For the first time, she thinks of herself and wants to go back to school to become a nurse.
Macarena prepares for the admission test and applies to a private university behind her family’s back in case she doesn’t get into college. Much to her joy, she is accepted. When she tells her husband and children, it causes a tremendous stir. Some are divided between supporting her determination and those who are afraid the household will get run down if she doesn’t have time to take care of it.
Macarena’s new social circle becomes a group of young students who are her children’s age. As she gets to know them, she understands and accepts them, as they do her, despite the generation gap. She realizes that youth has changed over the years, and she must adapt to technology and new slang.
In college, Macarena runs into her ex Rafael, who is a teacher there. He was the first man she ever loved and with whom she lived an epic summer love. It is an unresolved love story, though she would never admit it, Macarena has never been able to forget him. To make matters worse, her sister-in-law, who happens to be the head of the faculty, is dating Rafael.
For Macarena, the rekindling of this old flame, gives rise to doubts and confusion, while the tension her newfound freedom has created at home will put her marriage to the test. This causes conflicts in her family and puts their marriage at risk.
