“There’s nothing for free here“, says the shop owner to Chocó (played by the beautiful Karent Hinestroza). Chocó has lost her job in the gold mine while her husband the marimba player has gambled away all their money and she desperately wants to get hold of the birthday cake she has promised her daughter. “If you want cake, I want you“.
