“When it was released Little Victoria in 2019, he arrived to break with a lot of schemes and to open his eyes to other possibilities, and in this second installment that is reaffirmed ”, explained Pérez in dialogue with the news agency Telam.
In that first part that was seen on the channel of the multinational Viacom, the fiction brought together four women. On the one hand, Jazmín (Díaz) arrived at maternity from the surrogacy and that is when she met Bárbara (Pérez), the young pregnant woman. At the time of birth, Selva (Inés Estévez) was in charge of taking Barbara in her Uber to give birth, and then Emma (Genesio) entered the scene, a trans girl who turned out to be the sperm donor. From the birth of Victoria, all, with their differences, become mothers of the little girl.
Meanwhile, in Pequeñas victorias The plot takes place six years after that event, when Victoria (Lola Loyacono) begins her school stage and each of these mothers, with the exception of Estevéz’s character who is not in this season, seeks to rediscover herself as a woman and rediscover motherhood .
With the general direction of Juan Taratuto, this sequel / spin-off, which is also already available on the Amazon Prime Video platform, also features performances by Facundo Arana, Alan Sabbagh, Juan Leyrado, Miriam Odorico and Joaquin Rescigno.
The ten episodes of Pequeñas victorias, based on an original idea by Erika Halvorsen and Daniel Burman, will be on view Monday through Friday for the next two weeks.
Pérez, a rising actress and singer, gave some details about what happens to her character in the series: “Bárbara continues in that search for identity that has characterized her since the first season; She is always a bit lost, she went through many crises in her life and in this part she has a kind of bond with Selva, which leads her to reconnect with herself and discover a way out in her crazy head. In the story, a bit by chance, due to one of his antics or the slap of a drowning man, beautiful things begin to happen to him ”.
He also spoke about what the plot of this sequel seeks to reflect: “The first stage was dedicated to Victoria, and in this second season each one rediscovers herself as a woman, as a mother and, above all, they meet her wishes. We try to find the best version of ourselves ”. And about the “best version” of Barbara, he said: “She is the one who does not lie, the one who goes to the front. She sends shit up, but since she ends up being genuine she starts to go through nice situations. When she takes charge of who she is and what she did, she discovers that she is good, that she can empathize with people and have healthy bonds. She has that heavy, dense and dark history that she finds hard to shake off her, but when she connects with her friends, Victoria’s other mothers, she recognizes herself, values herself and accepts herself. At this stage you can see how that daughter did good to her life and helped her discover that genuine love that served her for many years. Then, at the beginning of the season, he goes back into a well, in a place that is not good, but later he manages to open up and feed on the love of others ”.
The actress also gave her vision about whether there is a demand from the viewer to see other stories: “Yes, one hundred percent. The interesting thing about fiction is that we can see stories like this that breaks a bit with the schemes and also see classic or futuristic stories. It is part of the magic. There were already families with two mothers, for example, but it was not visible, we did not dare to speak, to tell it. But luckily many heads are changing. This is a series where the viewer will see current issues, will see a tit, inclusive language and feminism. It was given a very good spin.
Pequeñas victorias It shows that motherhood is not what we thought; that it is good, that it can be shared, that the family is where there is love and that in these «small victories» is where we find that the bonds are the most important thing we have ”.
From a personal point of view, Pérez finally spoke about his vision of motherhood and family in the present: “My family is super conventional. My parents and my grandparents are still married, we are a typical family, we get together every Sunday to eat pasta and granny’s tuco, so I also have that training. When I got the first script from Little Victoria it was an explosion in my brain. In these years in which humanity has been awakening, my own ideas have also changed, something that I would never have imagined, but today I think that mothering is everywhere, I do not have children but I have the feeling of mothering all the time. The series broke with stereotypes. I came home to tell them the story and my grandfather told me, “You can’t do that.” And I replied that now you can do anything, that if you really want something you can get it. Fortunately, the repression of feelings is over, for both men and women. So I am happy to live in this age and to see all these incredible changes. “
