"Mujeres de negro" is a Mexican telenovela produced by Carlos Moreno for Televisa. It's a remake of a Finnish television series 'Mustat Lesket'. The main stars are Alejandra Barros, Mayrín Villanueva and Ximena Herrera.
"Mujeres de negro" features strong female characters who develop a radical plan to take control of their lives. Jackie, Vanessa and Katia have had enough of being taken advantage of and have joined together to kill their husbands and seek out new adventures. Finally free, the ladies did not expect that these new adventures would include close calls with both the criminal justice system and the criminal world. This dramatic tale will use dark humor to answer the age-old question: Is it possible to start again? And if so, at what cost?
