LOS ANGELES (March 21, 2011) – The acclaimed HBO Latin America Originals series, Capadocia: A Place Without Forgiveness, Season 1 comes to DVD May 24 from Maya Entertainment. The grim, bloody and chaotic series follows the struggles of several women imprisoned in an experimental penal complex in Mexico City. Starring Ana De La Reguera (Nacho Libre, Backyard, TV’s “Eastbound & Down”, Cop Out), Erendira Ibarra (Casi Divas, Double Tap) and Dolores Heredia (Vantage Point, Rudo y Cursi, Days of Grace), Capadocia draws inspiration from the real-life events and inmates at Mexico City’s infamous Santa Marta Women’s prison. Featuring a sneak peek of the second season, Capadocia: A Place Without Forgiveness, Season 1 comes in a five-disc DVD set featuring all 13 episodes for $19.98 SRP.
To restore order in the prisons of Mexico City it will become necessary to undertake urgent reform. Such reform will come at a great cost to those unfortunate prisoners forced to serve as test subjects in a new prison privately referred to as “the place without forgiveness.” Devised by a group of greedy businessmen who bribe the government with the promise of cheap forced labor, this experimental prison soon attracts unwanted attention, particularly from social activists. One activist in particular, Teresa Lagos, struggles to outsmart Federico Marquez, a lawyer hired to ensure the commercial viability of the new prison. In order to defeat his opposition, she incites a riot in one of the older jails. This forces the Mayor of Mexico City, Santiago Marin (Teresa’s former husband), to immediately open the doors of Capadocia. And thus begins a journey into a hell that knows no bounds, and has no exits.
