Since Jesica Sheffer (11) was seven years old, she suffers from a tendon malformation that prevents her from standing up straight. In spite of her condition, she practices the art of Chinese embroidery, tends her vegetable garden and occasionally cooks for the whole family. Her mother, Ramona Angélica de Lima, is of African descent and has six children. Ramona and her husband came to the village of Fracrán 30 years ago when very few families were living there. Fracrán is a tobacco producing area with a high incidence of people affected by agrotoxins.
