New fascinating telenovelo "Mara" takes over the Ghanaian airwaves

Directed by António Borges Correia, the Portuguese drama telenovela stars Alexandra Lencastre, José Wallenstein, Lourenço Ortigão, Ana Sofia Martins, Paulo Pires, Paula Neves, Nuno Homem de Sá, Silvia Rizzo and João Catarré.

The collapse of a great national bank triggers the clash of two realities. And the conflict between two families.

Luís Miguel is a young engineer who seeks to build a career in Angola. He leaves behind a traditional and conservative family, one that has been affected by the crisis. His father owns a construction firm in Portugal which is at risk of filing for bankruptcy and his mother expects to make money from a broken marriage.

Luís Miguel meets Mara in Angola, the nurse who saves him from near death. The girl’s father is an Angolan businessman who has significant investments in Portugal and he is also the construction firm’s number one client.

He holds the company’s fate in his hands but he bears a deep grudge against the Portuguese, since his father was murdered by one during the Colonial war. The legacy of this past and his current interests turn a corporate dispute into a clash of two worlds.

Yet nothing can survive the revenge of one woman. Luena is the daughter of two returnees who lost everything when Angola gained its independence. She wants to get the estate back for her family above all else. Including above herself.

The series which was premiered Wednesday, July 18, shows every Wednesday at 7:30pm.
