The series looks at women who kill, usually with an emphasis on their psychological issues and motives.
The violence is very graphic, quite realistic, and definitely played for shock value.
The opening episode stars Leticia Calderon -- as you have never seen her before -- as a mentally ill woman who kidnaps a younger woman to torture and kill her.
While her motives and backstory might otherwise have made her sympathetic, her sadism and coldness take all of that away.
I won't give away the ending, but while it is intellectually satisfying it lacks the emotional satisfaction of watching villains meeting their fates in novela finales.
Excellent performances by Calderon and Raul Ochoa as her creepy father, though, and adequate performances by Juan Soler as her husband, Grettel Valdez as her victim, and Nuria Bages as the victim's mother.
