What is the Plot of Griselda?
The following is the Griselda plot summary :
“Griselda follows the real life of Griselda Blanco, an intelligent and ambitious Colombian businesswoman who founded one of the most wealthy cartels in the history of the world. Blanco’s lethal blend of charm and unsuspected cruelty let her successfully maneuver between family and business, which led to her becoming widely known as the ‘Black Widow.’ Blanco is a devoted mother.
All in the name of turning a narcotic profit, there are guaranteed high-octane action sequences and desperate moments of anxiety and betrayal, as is familiar with stories of this sort. The fact that Griselda is a biographical miniseries, on the other hand, raises the possibility that aspects of the lady behind the cartel that were unrelated to business would be included. The synopsis already mentions how devoted she was as a mother.
