Who killed sara follows the story of a man named Alex Guzman, who has served 18 years in prison, for the murder of his sister, Sara. Sara died when her parachute was tampered with during the party in the lake near Rodolfo’s house. There Rodolfo, his brother Chema, Alex, Nicandro, Cesar, Mariana (Rodolfo and Chema’s parents), and Elroy and Marifer were the only people at the time of Sara’s murder and were somehow involved with what happened.
Alex, initially thinking Rodolfo did it and Cesar covers it, tries to seek revenge as soon as he’s out of prison. He meets Elisa, Rodolfo’s younger sister, and falls in love as Elisa helps him every step of the way to find who killed Sara. Which leads them to the horrendous crimes committed by human beings. Be it Sex Trafficking, homophobic crimes, murders, or abductions.
Is Who Killed Sara Based On A True Story?
No, “Who killed Sara?” is not based on a specific true story. Even though the world the show creates seems very real in a way that both sides that it shows could very well make it a real-life story. Say, the friendship Rodolfo and Alex share, Chema’s one-sided love for Alex, Alex and Eliza’s complex but an intense love story, Elroy’s love for Mariana as she saved him, Sara’s mental disorders, and then her mother’s struggle with it, along with Sara’s friends, or when you lose people.
Even the extremely bad things like sex trafficking are a reality we might not all see every day but it still exists and is just horrific to even think about. Murder and kidnapping are something that is more real than say, love. It is staggering but true. Homophobia is well a real thing in today’s time, as the crime against LGBTQs is more prevalent than not. People can’t even grasp the concept of it and just see it with hatred as if it’s a disease.
As is mental health, since no one pays as much attention to mental health as they should, Sara struggles with multiple psychological disorders without anyone even realizing it. She has dissociative identity disorder, and schizophrenia and is delusional. People in real-life struggle with these problems every day, and it is as real as it gets. So yes the show might not be based on one particular story in real life but has every aspect that makes it very real.
