Capadocia (TV Series 2008–2012)

Capadocia is the name of an innovative women's prison facility in Mexico City that was created as a result of political interest and power struggles. Two projects converge there, both as conflicting as their leaders: one, a humanitarian project lead by Teresa Lagos (Dolores Heredia), who seeks to implement a program for the comprehensive rehabilitation of imprisoned women; the other, a commercial project spearheaded by Federico Márquez (Juan Manuel Bernal), who, conversely, seeks to benefit from the prison's cheap labor, veiled by social discourse about teaching the prisoners a skill that will allow them to reintegrate into society. In Capadocia, three central stories are intertwined, those of Teresa (Dolores Heredia), Federico (Juan Manuel Bernal) and Lorena (Ana De La Reguera), a young and attractive housewife, mother of three, who has - or at least the appearance of - a life worthy of the finest picture frame; but one day destiny takes charge of showing her that, far from perfection, her life is full of dark events that will send her behind bars. This powerful fictional series recreates the reality of a women's prison, as well as the reality outside of it; moreover, it shows the similarities between both of them, at times the bars being the only distinction. The series depicts the positive and negative aspects of the human race; life is exposed as a constant fight for survival, marked by personal ambition, with sentences imposed at times by justice, and other times by feelings. Definition of Capadocia Capadocia, currently a territory of Turkey, was the name of the area where the Amazons settled, a legendary race of women warriors. The etymology of the word Amazon is based on the Greek prefix.
