Capadocia is a Mexican drama television series that premiered on HBO Latino in 2008. The show portrays the lives of female prisoners and prison staff members in a fictional penitentiary located in Mexico City. The series ran for three seasons and a total of 39 episodes until its finale in 2012.

Dolores Heredia stars in the lead role of Teresa Lagos, the newly appointed director of the Penitenciaria de Santa Martha. Lagos is a determined and strong-willed woman who is committed to bringing change in the prison system, by improving the living conditions of the inmates, rehabilitating them, and providing them with new opportunities. However, she soon realizes that the task ahead of her is not so easy, for the prison is riddled with corruption, violence, and power struggles, both inside and outside the jail.

As the series progresses, the audience is introduced to a diverse set of characters, each with their own backstory, motivation, and problems. Among the prisoners are Lorena (Cecilia Suárez), a middle-class journalist who is wrongfully accused of murder and is trying to prove her innocence. Meanwhile, Tere (Ana de la Reguera), is a former drug dealer who has turned to religion in prison and hopes to start a new life once she is released. On the other side of the jail, we have the prison staff, including Federico Marquez (Juan Manuel Bernal), the corrupt chief security officer, who is involved in smuggling drugs and weapons inside the facility.

The show explores various social issues that are prevalent in Mexican society, such as gender inequality, discrimination, poverty, and violence. It highlights the harsh realities and struggles that the female prisoners face inside the jail, from overcrowding and unsanitary conditions to abuse and mistreatment at the hands of the guards. The show also depicts the personal lives of the characters outside the prison walls, revealing their relationships, families, and struggles.

One of the unique aspects of Capadocia is its portrayal of the prison as a microcosm of society, where the power dynamics, hierarchies, and conflicts mirror those of the outside world. The show also touches upon political and social issues of Mexico, such as drug trafficking, political corruption, and violence.

The show's cinematography is aesthetically pleasing, with the use of natural light, close-up shots, and muted colors. The music score also adds to the dramatic tension of the series, with a mix of haunting melodies and upbeat tracks.

Overall, Capadocia is a well-written and well-executed drama that explores the complexities of the Mexican prison system and its impact on the lives of those inside and outside. It is a powerful commentary on the state of the society and the challenges faced by women who are trapped in the system. The show's talented cast, led by Dolores Heredia, delivers compelling performances that keep the audience engaged and emotionally invested.

Capadocia is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (39 episodes). The series first aired on March 2, 2008.
