Summary
  • Una historia de deseo, traición y seducción. Una de las historias más populares del mundo, sobre una mujer gitana sensual y hechicera con un carácter indomable y con la capacidad de corromper a cualquier hombre
  • During a trip to Spain, French writer Prosper Mérimée witnesses a fascinating story. Carmen has the nature of a free and enigmatic person. Her beauty inspires his characters and passion. Sergeant Jose becomes a victim and hero of extraordinary events, and has a turbulent love affair with Carmen. With each new lover Carmen takes, Jose becomes more jealous and steps toward a life of crime. After killing the latest lover, he tries to get away and start a new life. Jose's passionate words to Carmen fall on deaf ears. With every episode of love a small death, how can Jose retain Carmen's love? A story of lust, betrayal and seduction
