20,000 Species Of Bees


What would you do if your 6-year-old son told you he was a girl?


Lucía is 5 years old and she is a girl with a penis who, in the middle of the separation of her parents, is waiting in anticipation for summer to come. For Lucía the two long months of summer she is going to spend with her brothers/sisters in the maternal hometown are the perfect chance for her to show everyone the girl she is. For the whole family, these will be the holidays in which they will start to see how they really are.
