“Old Bridge Secret” is a daily series that makes the most of the premises of classic romantic literature: impossible loves, revenge, betrayal... And dirty little secrets.
With its strong universal characters, “Old Bridge Secret” has spread overseas. It has become a social phenomenon in Italy, and was sold to Chile, French-speaking Africa, Bulgaria, Latin America, Nigeria, Poland, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia, Slovenia, Croatia, Macedonia, the Ukraine, the U.S. (Spanish-speaking Florida), Hungary and Lithuania. The soap is the sum total of a series of exciting stories that initially arise around the life of one woman: Pepa Balmes, and how her arrival at Old Bridge changed the lives of its inhabitants forever.
Set in rural Spain in the early 20th century, “Old Bridge Secret“, tells the story of Pepa the midwife; an incredible woman who fought to find her stolen child and freely live out a love that was forbidden in the eyes of society at the time.
After almost 700 episodes, and after a seventeen-year jump in time, this story is now in the past and Pepa's children, Gonzalo and Aurora, have now taken over where their dead mother left off. And so, Gonzalo (Martín), now Old Bridge's new priest, will protagonize a new love triangle. A great story of impossible love. Meanwhile, Aurora, who is the spitting image of Balmes, will have to fend for herself among her kin until they finally recognize that she is the daughter of Tristán and Pepa.
But this is not the only surprise awaiting viewers. It turns out Pepa had another son: Bosco. The pure-hearted wild young man arrives at Old Bridge only to fall under the influence of the all-powerful Francisca Montenegro.
When Bosco disappears, and coinciding with the fifth anniversary of the series, a new family arrives at Old Bridge who will open a water business in the village called: Los Manantiales. The owners of this new factory, who are hiding dark secrets from their past, will serve as the backbone for new and exciting stories.
