Behind her dirty overalls and toolbox is a woman unlike any other: forceful, spirited, possessing a quiet beauty and rock-solid values. She is Griselda. Ms. Carrasco. She is the “Handyman”. And this is her wonderful story, the story of a woman who has changed for good the lives of all those around her.
Griselda Carrasco is a strong and determined woman, who has faced life’s difficulties by coping with all situations by her strong moral ethics. She takes care of three children and a grandson all on her own since her husband, Jose Antonio, disappeared at sea 15 years ago. Without losing her enthusiasm and zest for life, she has devoted herself to doing what she knows to do best: plumbing and roof repairs, wiring and painting.
So here we have Griselda in a brightly colored van, going from one end of Miami to the other, and destined to run into Teresa Cristina, a well-bred lady, who is arrogant and apt to do outrageous things. She is married to Reinaldo, the famous chef of the Gourmet Palmer restaurant. He is a good-hearted man, but is incapable of changing a flat tire. Reinaldo will become intrigued, if not bewitched by Griselda, the woman who fixes this problem in no time at all.
What Griselda doesn’t know is that her son Antonio is dating Patricia, the daughter of Reinaldo, and Teresa Cristina. To her great surprise and disappointment, Griselda discovers that Antonio has introduced his future in-laws to a woman who he has hired to play the part of his mother. Reinaldo’s heart breaks when he sees how devastated Griselda is by this.
But Griselda’s luck changes overnight when she wins the lottery jackpot: 43 million dollars. From that moment, her life will never be the same.
