Santa Evita Season 1 Recap
Santa Evita was born in Argentina, she was very beautiful and was a passionate poem writer, growing up her mother thought that she can be a famous actress and musician and hence she started hustling to make her daughter into Buenos Aires. Despite the difficulties she faced in her career she managed to get to a position in the radio show and due to her talent, she became one of the most famous radio actresses in Argentina.
But in this success, something was missing. The desire to become an actress was still within her. There are a lot of controversies that she became a part of, one of which was her marriage. In 1944 Evita became a source of sensation because of her connections and closeness with president San Juan which became prominent attention.

The plan was to preserve the body until the monumental burial site was constructed but this doesn’t happen and the government was overthrown three years later after her death, president San Jaun fled away and took homage in another country whereas the body was still left behind with Dr, Pedro Ara.
