The Art Detectives
A teenage Art expert and her friends become detectives that recover stolen paintings.
Mona Velázquez has inherited her deep knowledge and passion for Art from her father, an Art gallery owner, and her mother, an Art restorer. But she abandoned them years ago. Her other passion is to play “escape room” with her friends: Nahim, computer geek and mentalist; Sofia, a socialite, an expert in making friends in any situation; and Leo, as adorable as he’s clumsy.
After solving the theft of a Picasso painting from Mona’s father’s gallery, the insurance agency, impressed by the detective skills of Mona and her friends, asks them for help in other robbery cases. They become The Art Detectives. In each episode they will have to put their skills to work to recover a piece of art and catch the culprit. They manage to catch them almost every time, except in a series of robberies that have the same perpetrator, who always ends up slipping away. They call this mysterious thief “the Shadow”.
When they discover the Shadow’s identity: it will turn out to be… Mona’s estranged mother!
