Sin Tetas No Hay Paraíso
I just learned of the planned television show, “Sin Tetas No Hay Paraíso” (Without Breasts There Is No Paradise), via an editorial in the journal Plastic Surgical Nursing. Here’s the charming summary, from Wikipedia:
Paraíso tells the story of 17-year-old Catalina, a gorgeous young girl who descends into a decadent world of easy money as a teen prostitute. She comes from a poor single-parent family and her brother works as a hired killer for drug traffickers. The girl dreams of a life of luxury, but she is not bosomy enough to attract a wealthy pusher whom she can seduce into making her a pampered paramour.
Sick of poverty, Catalina decides that plastic surgery will help her find a new life. During her pursuit, she is raped, gets an abortion and dives into the sex trade. She sells her body to raise money for breast augmentation. After five operations, she loses the will to live and considers suicide.
An English-language version of this Telemundo production is reportedly in development for NBC’s 2008-2009 season. Ugh.
