MIAMI, Sept. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A story that will leave audiences scandalized. A kiss that paralyzed a nation. Canal SUR is shaking the screen with the most defiant, controversial and outrageous telenovela in recent memory. A wide-open challenge to the taboo and the conventional that will seduce you from the very first chapter.
Paloma (Paolla Oliveira) is a courageous warrior of a woman who lives in a state of constant family conflict, straining to keep her balance in a web of lies that threatens to suffocate her. The revelation that will change her life will take place in Machu-Picchu, the historic Peruvian city of the Incas.
Filmed between Brazil and Peru, this famous Globo TV production deals forthrightly with controversial subjects such as homophobia, autism and organ donation. According to its author, Walcyr Carrasco, the great merit of Rastros de Mentiras ('Traces of Lies' – originally, "Amor a Vida," or 'Love of Life'), among others, was that for the first time, it got an audience to approve of a gay couple. The characters Niko (Thiago Fragoso) and Félix (Mateus Solano) became landmark figures with the first gay kiss on TV, paralyzing the nation and causing ratings to skyrocket.
Its production was also a challenge for those who had to perform the roles of strong, controversial and complex characters every day. The show swept the awards for Best Telenovela, Best Actor (Mateo Solano), Best Supporting Actress (Elizabeth Savalla), Discovery of the year (Tatá Werneck), Teen Idol (Caio Castrol) and Child Actress of the year (Klara Castanho).
