Product Description

En Tlalpujahua, un pequeño pueblo mexicano del estado de Michoacán, la industria gira alrededor de las esferas de vidrio –su especialidad. La tienda donde Ángela trabaja, como muchas otras, semeja un pequeño nido de fantasía, cubierta de pared a pared con un sin fin de detalles que evocan desde Papá Noel hasta los magos de oriente. Nacimientos, coronas, guirnaldas y esferas, muchas esferas, cientos de esferas. Grandes y pequeñas, opacas y brillantes, redondas y cuadradas.

¿Qué pensarán los clientes si adivinan que la encargada de esa pequeña tienda de artesanía detesta la Navidad? ¿Y qué de don Rubén, el dueño de esa tienda y fábrica de esferas que tampoco aprecia las festividades? A estos dos la Navidad se les figura un invento mercantil para despojar a la gente de su dinero y su aguinaldo. Un pretexto más para comer y beber. Una ocasión para que los pobres sean más pobres, y los ricos más ricos. Pero quizá en esta ocasión todo cambie debido al regreso  de Clara, la hija de Ángela, quien llega con una noticia devastadora. Y la presencia de Adrián, el hijo de don Rubén, quien decide acompañar a su padre para sus primeras sesiones de quimioterapia. 

Por su parte, Clara y Adrián han vuelto al pueblo donde crecieron; el lugar donde deben enfrentar el pasado, aceptar su presente y construir su futuro; el lugar donde parece Navidad todo el año. ¿Pero será para ellos una "feliz" Navidad?

In Tlalpujahua, a small Mexican village of Michoacan state, the industry revolves around the glass spheres-their specialty. The store where Angela works, like many others, resembles a small nest of fantasy, covered wall to wall with a myriad of details that evoke from Santa Claus to the Magi. Births, wreaths, garlands and globes, many areas, hundreds of spheres. Large and small, opaque and shiny, round and square.

What customers think if they guess that the manager of the small craft store that hates Christmas? What about Don Ruben, the owner of that store and spheres factory, he does not like the festivities? To these two Christmas is a commercial invention to strip people of their money and bonuses. An excuse to eat and drink. An opportunity for the poor get poorer and the rich get richer. But perhaps this time thins change due to the return of Clara, the daughter of Angela, who arrives with some devastating news. And the presence of Adrian, the son of Don Reuben, who decides to accompany his father to his first chemotherapy sessions.

Meanwhile, Clara and Adrian have returned to the village where they grew up, the place where they must face the past, accept the present and build the future, the place where it seems Christmas all year. But will it be for them a "happy" Christmas?
