Years back I just missed seeing Cristina Sánchez in Seville - so here I am. Early on the characterizations of Elena, Tanok, Pastora, Rafael, make clear the stress points that underpin a drama providing good, strong roles throughout. The kaleidoscopic time shifts - 1992, 2006, 1987, 1992, 2006, 2000, 2002, 2000,1992, 2005, 2006 - let us observe all four as they were, are, will be. Legacy, tradition, family secrets, anger, romance, courage, and moments of truth in and out of the ring. Both the tail and the ears for Monet Hurst-Mendoza’s engaging adventure of a girl/woman/hero pursuing her passion.
