Eight-year-old Cayetana is a somewhat morose kid, captivated by reports of Shining Path attacks and fascinated with the lives and deaths of the heroes of Peruvian independence. When she learns that her divorced mother is pregnant, Cayetana becomes convinced that she will die on the day her baby brother is born. Her beautiful —and funny— dream sequences metaphorically explore the coming of age of a girl alert and sensitive enough to feel ambivalent about an uncertain future.

Cayetana es una niña de ocho años cautivada por los reportajes de los ataques de Sendero Luminoso y fascinada por las vidas de los héroes peruanos. Cuando se entera de que su madre está embarazada, Cayetana se convence de que morirá el día que su hermano nazca. Sus sueños -hermosos y cómicos- exploran metafóricamente el proceso de crecimiento de una niña lúcida y sensible en una época de inseguridades.
