Another challenge in La Quebrada

According to todotvnews.com, at this stage Gladys is among an inexperienced group of prisoners taken to La Quebrada prison. Their car gets swallowed up by water and they are almost dying. However, she succeeds in freeing herself and others from captivity. Five survivors covered with mud get onto dry land. 

They have to go through tough times under harsh prison rule and amid different tribes that run daily life inside their walls because they join their hands together against all odds overcoming their own weaknesses and strengths forming another gang called Las Embarradas.

For fans of intense female prison dramas like Wentworth or Turkish series such as The Yard or even Orange is the New Black; En el Barro should be watched. The series will have all the ingredients of intense drama as well as a compelling story of survival and unity.
