In "Madrugada", protagonist Trinidad Rios is on a mission to find her father, whom she doesn't know and hasn't seen in years. She is afraid of being rejected, although fear is not unusual to her: all her life, since she was abandoned in the wild jungle and escaped to Lima , she has had to fight against human traffickers, illegal miners, and racists. Although she successfully survived, a disease caused by mercury contamination forces her to look for the only person in the world who can save her through a transplant. Will her father accept her, a bipolar singer who makes a living imitating the Bee Gees? This work explores the mechanisms of a society full of contrasts, prejudices, and resentments.
