Anina Yatay Salas (Federica Lacaño) is a young school child who is teased for having three palindromes in her name. One day at recess, Anina ends up fighting with another girl, Yisel (Lucía Parrilla). The principal (Cristina Morán) gives them a unique punishment that teaches them a lesson in compassion.
This is a wonderful film full of heartwarming moments. It basically captures the feel of a child’s everyday life along with vividly portrayed daydreams and nightmares. The animation style is unique but simple, reminiscent at times of the work of Studio Ghibli or Cartoon Saloon. Could make for a good family movie to watch with young children.
