Al­t­a­gra­cia San­doval (Aracely Arám­bula) is sexy, sassy and dan­ger­ous as the lead char­ac­ter in te­len­ov­ela Iron Rose (2016cur­rent). She was abused as a child and wit­nessed other girls go­ing through the same or­deal. Al­t­a­gra­cia fought her way out of her sit­u­a­tion and the busi­ness­woman is now us­ing her suc­cess and power to hunt down the men who wronged her and make them pay for their sins against women.

Through her quest for re­venge, Al­t­a­gra­cia learns more about her es­tranged daugh­ter Mon­ica (Danna Paola – she played Paloma in te­len­ov­ela If Only I Were You, 2015-2016), whom she gave up for adop­tion as a baby. Mon­ica mean­while knows noth­ing of her birth­mother and lives with her dis­abled adop­tive fa­ther Lazaron Her­nan­dez (Odiseo Bichir). The women are re-united af­ter they both meet charm­ing lawyer Saul Aguirre (David Cho­carro), who’s fight­ing for women’s rights and strikes a chord with the pair through his work. That’s where things get messy, be­cause Al­t­a­gra­cia and Mon­ica fall for Saul and then dis­cover their blood link. Not that David is com­plain­ing – he’s lov­ing his role, adding that “this isn’t like any other te­len­ov­ela as it touches on themes not seen in most shows, such as abuse and vi­o­lence against women. View­ers will iden­tify with the dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters and con­nect with the story that’s play-ing out. When I read Saul’s pro­file, I felt like the char­ac­ter was writ­ten for me – there are very dra­matic, mov­ing and hope­ful scenes with him.”

Al­t­a­gra­cia is lead­ing an at­tack against abusers.
