A collection of stories that deal with children’s rights, or, more precisely, the lack of basic rights that an important part of the children in the world still suffer nowadays. Thus we find the stories of kids who survive thanks to dustbins, the feats of girls forced to marry adult men when they have barely left their dolls, the discrimination against the different who become social cannon fodder. These are stories full of life, despite their raw nature, and they bet on the victory of freedom and justice.
