CARACOL CRUZANDO is a story about Anais, an eight year old Costa Rican girl who faces the hardest decision she’s ever had to make: should she go against her parent’s wishes and sneak her best friend and pet turtle, Tiku, with her across the United States/Miami border, or should she leave him behind? As Anais grapples with this decision, she’s also confronted with the possible loss of her family. In order to elude suspicion, Anais’ parents have decided to cross the border separately: Anais and her father, Hector, will cross as one, her mother Yelida and brother Carlos will cross separately, placing Anais’ decision regarding Tiku in a difficult light.
