The Two Lives of Estela Carrilo

The Two Lives of Estela Carrillo on tlnovelas on StarSat o03

Laura Oviedo dreams of becoming a successful Mexican regional singer. One day her dreams seemed to be in reach when she met Fausto, a handsome and charismatic man promising her the path to becoming a career singer.

She realised that her trust in this man was naïve when she found herself tricked into becoming part of a prostitution ring, having to do the vilest of things just to survive. In these terrible conditions, she meets Paloma, a little girl who was also sold to the trafficking ring.

When a window of opportunity presented itself Laura escaped with Paloma and illegally crossed the border into the US under her new identity “Estela Carrillo” and passing the child off as her daughter. She found employment as a music teacher and came under the attention of a man named Ryan Cabrera, who convinces her to falsely testify on his behalf to free him of a murder charge.

No “Estela” finds herself in a situation where the only way out is to find out who the real Estela Carrillo is while trying to keep her dreams alive.
