Unstoppable is an engaging Mexican drama television series that debuted on Netflix in 2020. It was created by Diego Martínez Ulanosky and produced by Argos Comunicación and Netflix. Unstoppable is specifically designed for anyone who enjoys a generous dose of female empowerment, camaraderie, personal growth, and exciting road trip adventures. It is a Spanish-speaking series that comes with subtitles for global viewers, revealing the creative craftsmanship of Spanish-speaking filmmakers.

The show focuses on a trio of close friends with fiery personalities and powerful independence. The story begins with the vivacious protagonist, named Carlota, played by Tessa Ía, who is bored with her monotonous life. She walks around with a significant amount of frustration that often finds it's way into her relationships, causing a bit of trouble. But, she’s not ready to give up on living a life of adventure just yet. So, when her boyfriend proposes, she panics. Additionally burdened by the news that her best friend is suffering from a terminal illness, Carlota decides that drastic measures are necessary.

This is where the core premise of Unstoppable comes into play. Empowered by the streak of rebellion and defiance against the conventional, Carlota persuades her friends—a motley group that includes rebellious Rocío (Lucía Uribe), naïve Ana (Bárbara López), adventurous Marcela (Coti Fernandez) and her best friend, Sofía (Violeta Alvarez)—to embark on a road trip through Mexico. Each character has a well-developed backstory that adds depth to the narrative. They all possess distinctive traits and have personal issues they are battling, making them relatable and real. Determined to not let anyone or anything steer their life, the girls leave their old life behind.

Unstoppable is about the exploration and celebration of women's freedom, their right to make choices, and their battle against patriarchal norms and expectations. The group sets out on a mission to find Sofía who escaped from a rehabilitation center and join her in Oaxaca. This road trip becomes a spiritual journey of self-discovery, where they confront their deepest fears, insecurities, and self-doubt.

This drama utilizes the road trip’s backdrop masterfully to bring out the different layers of emotional bonding, heartbreak, struggle and resilience, transformation, and the search for happiness among the group of friends. Through the ups and downs, they create unique memories, learn hard truths of life, and define personal freedom for themselves. The journey also sheds light on the societal standards and constraints they face as women and the strength they gather to combat them.

The relentless spirit of all the characters and the brilliant performances of the cast make Unstoppable a compelling watch. The series is incredibly well-shot with beautiful Mexican landscapes and locales adding to the visual appeal. The makers also addressed sensitive and critical topics such as dependence, addiction, oppression, sexual identity with empathy, and in a commendable manner. The show excels in many aspects like storytelling, direction, cinematography, screenplay, and the performances of the entire cast. It stands out for its raw, energetic, and intense portrayal of the characters.

Unstoppable is not just about friendship and rebellion. It's also a story about how women, despite their differences, can uplift and strengthen one another. It's about empowerment, freedom of choice, roots, grounding, and finding oneself amidst the chaos of societal expectations and standards. While the narrative is vigorously high on drama, it doesn't shy away from showcasing the everyday challenges they face or the often-ignored issues in society.

The series, with its captivating storyline and refreshing narrative tone, stands out as a unique contribution from the Mexican television industry. Unstoppable brings a new layer of subtlety to feminist discourse on screen, and while addressing serious subjects, it does not lose its essence of celebrating womanhood and personal freedom. It is a must-watch for viewers interested in watching a heady cocktail of camaraderie, rebellion, drama, freedom, self-discovery, and the magic of unwavering and unstoppable friendship.

Unstoppable is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (10 episodes). The series first aired on February 28, 2020.
