Pucha vida

  • Spanish

Pucha is a model revolutionary; she lives a happy life in an environment she has decorated herself. The wooden boards of her house were taken from the heart of the Sierra Maestra, and everything she possesses has a place in her world. Nevertheless, Rogelia has a conflict between her ideals and her reality.

Pucha es modelo de la revolución; ella vive una vida feliz en un entorno que ha decorado ella misma. Los paneles de madera de su casa fueron tomados desde el corazón de la Sierra Maestra. Todo lo que posee tiene un porque en su mundo. Sin embargo, Rogelia tiene un conflicto entre sus ideales y su realidad.
