LA TORTUGA QUE HUÍA DEL JAGUAR
(the tortoise that escaped from the jaguar)
One morning, on a Caribbean beach, a hawksbill turtle appears dead. They say it was killed by a jaguar. When Marilia hears the news, she mysteriously resolves that it’s time to leave home. She leaves behind Aunt Granada and the enigmatic Jason, who catches fishes for her. After bidding farewell to the Demon of the Dock, a being who is mocked by everyone in the village, she begins a journey that will take her through exotic landscapes, of which perhaps the most important is her own past, the only way to understand her present. Thus, she will discover a secret that will push her to make the most risky decision of her life, in a fight to the death between the two most overwhelming forces of human nature: fear and desire.
