Discover the largest project of social construction in Colombia.
It is a documentary from real life that shows the development of social innovation, which is not a technical solution to a social problem, or a war against power, it is typically systematical because it must understand social tissue in an integral way. This program is based in entrepreneurship that generates a social change though positive transformation. In each emission we will see initiatives led by Colombians who work for the less fortunate and most vulnerable communities in our country, the labors of social entrepreneurs that are worth highlighting, recognizing and projecting in their effort to build a better future.
To strengthen the labor of these heroes and their innovative changes, we have a celebrity who will be the intermediary between the TV viewer and the different entrepreneurs, with the objective of reinforcing through their emotions and experience this social adventure, which shows us that in Colombia there are people who are changing the world. Through the participation of a celebrity in Mission Impact the human, solidary and conscientious side of these characters can be shown, providing volunteer timing of 3 to 9 days depending on its availability and the intensity of the entrepreneurship. The goal of Mission Impact is to promote the culture and mindfulness of entrepreneurship and social innovation through a transmedia (TV, Digital) strategy.
The Project starts in Colombia and the purpose is to replicate it in the region and around the world.

From the insides of Habana, in 1925, a black Cinderella is born filled with flavor, talent and transcendence:
Daughter of a humble family, she came to this world with the blessing of the Gods and a lucky star that would be with her throughout her life, despite its ups and downs. Her talent, voice and charm transformed her from being a poor, skinny and ugly black girl to the Latin America´s most beloved and successful musical artist around the world.
In an age where female singers were classified as tramps, Celia made her way through, beating prejudices and crowning herself as the most important lead singer of the famous orchestra: “La Sonora Matancera”.
What seemed to be the way out to a successful career and the solution of poverty and misery, all thanks to music; almost crumble because of a Cuba falling gradually in the strictest military dictatorship, which threatened to bring downCelia´s dreams. Now she not only had to face the whims of an industry run by men but also the harassment, mistreatment and injustice of a system that she never accepted.
Feeling her musical momentum vanished and passing a hard time with her family, she receives an invitation, in 1961, to leave the country with the band, without knowing that it would not be temporary but for the rest of her life. Since that trip, Celia would never come back to Cuba again which means leaving her loved ones behind, including her mother suffering from cancer, for exilingin Mexican lands.
Beside her at the time was a musician from the band “La Sonora Matancera”, who gradually grew in her heart and became eventually the undisputed love of her life. It was the famous womanizer Pedro Knight, who by the time he showed up in Celia´s life already had 2 recognized daughters and was an unstoppable flirtatious, including among his conquest Celia´s sister, Noris, who by the way stayed behind in Cuba like all of Celia´s close friends and family.
However, love is stronger and Celia falls at Pedro´s feet, loving him madly and realizing that close to him she will finds happiness and the strength to conquer the world. Celia´s talent and commitment proved to be stronger than her problems: the Cuban revolution that pursues her, the disagreements with Pedro, her parent’s deaths and the eternal forced exile she had to live with.
Her name and charm reached Tito Puente and then Johnny Pacheco, who in those days was bringing together “La Fania All Stars” in the city of New York. A group of the best Salsa musicians in the land, where Celia would be the most valued jewel, and along them, “la Guarachera”, conquered every soul who attended her concerts and every person that bought her records.
At the same time, her best friend in Cuba, the talented singer with an extraordinary voice Lola Calvo, now settled in New York after going through a living hell at her country would become Celia´s great rival. Young Lola would be Celia´s negative counterpart, while having practically the same talent and opportunities as Celia, she will show that in order to achieve true greatness is needed more than a great voice.
Celia´s love for children was infinite. Around the middle of her life and with the big desire of being a mother we will also observe how that obstacle was established in her soul. Destiny never gave her a child of her own; however, a 12 year old boy from her fans club, with time, will be like her lost son, and would give her the opportunity to love him as a mother, despite Pedro´s jealousy and rejection. Although eventually with time he would accept him.
When all obstacles seems defeated, Celia would face her last and hardest challenge, her sister Noris will come from Cuba and will witness the luxurious and successful life that Celia lives. She will suffers envy and also an old and unresolved affection for Pedro will be present.
This is the story of Celia Cruz, the not so pretty, black, skinny and shy girl, who never stopped singing and carrying an important message of freedom for her people. She never bought into the fame machine, remained always humble and charismatic, and with commitment achieved everything she aimed in life. With her voice she seduced audiences from different languages and she made her own revolution: to make Salsa music the most important Latino music genre in the world, to be remembered in history as that woman, who far away from her home, honored it and showed us there are no impossible dreams.
At Portales de La Cabrera, a flaunty building of the capital city, the polemic financial specialist Pedro Ospina, shows up dead. Everything indicates it was a suicide, but Sara Yunus, journalist and resident of the building, believes it was a murder and will do everything in her power to prove it. During her investigation, Sara will not only find clues that will bring her closer to Pedro´s murderer, but she will also start discovering the terrible secrets that surround the residents of the building. The journalist will have to face death while she fights, at the same time, to keep her husband from having to pay for a crime he didn´t commit.

Sara Yunus, a reporter for El Meridiano newspaper, publishes a story that puts in evidence the imminent bankruptcy of the company called Valores Ospina, not minding that its owner, Pedro Ospina, was the first man to ever steal her heart. Two weeks after unleashing the scandal and when it seems like Pedro is finally going to give Sara the list of those who made illegal investments in the company, he shows up dead in his apartment of the Portales de la Cabrera building. A bullet wound, a gun in his hand and a thread of blood seem to indicate that Ospina committed suicide. Everybody close to Pedro and the residents of Portales de La Cabrera blindly believe in this theory from the Prosecutor´s Office except for Sara who, by intuition and because she knew Pedro really well, suspects that Pedro was murdered and doesn´t plan on resting until she finds the murderer.
Pedro Ospina dedicated his last years to the collection of money and became a millionaire. He was able to build an emporium and well known personalities invested large amounts of money with him, taking advantage of the high interests and tax free profits that supposed the illegal placements.

Now, he has many enemies and more than one would want to see him dead. This way, the residents and employees of Portales de la Cabrera become suspects of the crime. Even if they seem the opposite, they all have something to hide and they can´t allow the eyes of the media to pose on the building and its prestigious inhabitants. Even Sergio Sader, Sara´s future husband, becomes one of the most probable suspects of the crime, not only for jealousy but also because the circumstances show him as one of the many hidden investors. And even though Sara refuses to believe that he is guilty, she has to choose between the love she feels for him and her firm ethical duty to find the truth.
As Sara´s investigations move forward and the mystery becomes more complicated, the secrets of the residents of Portales de La Cabrera, come out little by little to the light: a woman who cheats on her husband with the husband of her own sister; a wife who hides money from her husband, trying to save in order to leave him some day; an honorable Senator of the Republic who evades taxes and is involved with illegal bands; and a candidate to the Presidency who committed a crime. But at the end, the least expected, the only one who seemed to have the principles of truth and honesty, ends up being Ospina´s murderer. Now, Sara´s life is in danger because the real murderer isn´t willing to let anybody catch him
