Queen Of The South Season 5 – What Is The Show About?
Created by M.A Fortin and Joshua John Miller, Queen Of The South is ultimately based upon the novel La Reina del Sur by the Spanish writer, Arturo Pérez-Reverte.
The series revolves around Teresa Mendoza and her roller-coaster journey of becoming the controller of the biggest drug network across the globe. It becomes even more interesting because she rises from scratch and reaches the topmost level in a sphere that is otherwise dominated by men.
Mendoza, a financially weak Mexican woman who resides in Sinaloa, ends up falling in love with a man who is part of a drug gang. Mendoza tries to improve and strengthen her poor living and financial condition, however, the murder of her boyfriend forces her to take an escape route towards the other side of the border in the US.
Life takes a turn in the new country where Mendoza decides to face the situation and join hands with an old acquaintance of hers against the leader of the drug dealing circle that has been relentlessly chasing her. As fate has it and the writer wants it, Mendoza herself gets involved in the business of drugs over a period of time and becomes rich and powerful.
However, with the kind of power that she attains, also come some challenges and threats. These are not like the pangs of poverty that Mendoza has earlier faced but definitely dangerous enough to put even her life at risk.
