Aurorita just turned ten and is one of the best in her class. She is cheerful and educated, and dreams of being a doctor. But her plans could be thwarted by a dangerous wolf that stalks her: Don Victoriano, the richest landowner in the region.


Don Victoriano, still in his seventies, believes he is "a man with hair on his chest"; and nothing would strengthen that vile fantasy more than his macabre plans. Therefore, having bought the land where Aurorita and her parents live, she has given her father an ultimatum: "You have ten days to leave me these empty lands."


Don Victoriano knows that these humble people have no money to pay him. That's why he pressures them: he has a proposal for the girl's father.
