by Mily Huertas
In her script “MI AMIGA LA CUDA” Mily vindicates the magical world of the legends of her place of origin to overcome the challenges of being an immigrant. Sami, a Peruvian girl who lives with her mother in Barcelona, spends her days between the loneliness of her home and bullying at school. La Cuda, a fantastic being in the form of a woman with chicken feet, will go from being a threat to becoming Sami’s ally to overcome the difficulties that arise, especially when the Social Services threaten to separate her from her mother.
