As someone with a background in psychology, I see Estela's script as a chance to explore themes like abandonment and the maternal desire through paranormal elements, reflecting our internal struggles. It's a nuanced tale of a woman's quest for motherhood and a spirit longing for love. From the start, I knew it had to be a thriller with a human psyche as the true adversary.
