Synopsis edit

Ka Ina tells the story of two women, dangerously linked by superstition, magic and the love of one man. Catalina Miranda and Maniña Yerichana are both beautiful and young. The first is an assertive and independent engineer educated in Europe; the second, the most powerful and feared woman in the jungle, a legendary priestess born to a Dutch gold digger and a Yanomami Indian Princess. Catalina and Maniña will become antagonists because of Ricardo Leon, a mysterious man from the capital city. But there is a fascinating element of magic that makes this rivalry especially interesting. Although they appear to be the same age, Maniña and Catalina are really mother and daughter, a fact that no one knows. A riveting fairy tale filled with ancient folklore and mysterious legends.[5][6]

After Ka Ina ended in Citynet as the first English-dubbed Hispanic telenovela in the said country, Citynet never borrowed any telenovela to be dubbed in English.
