[Completed Story] Only three hours until the imminent landing of Hurricane María on the island of Puerto Rico.

Doña Inés, along with other family members and neighbors, have been evacuated from their homes and now live in a shelter. Tensions are running high--nostalgia, desperation, and uncertainty for the future rampaging through the forty-five individuals cramped in the small school gymnasium.

One legend--a story of bravery, sacrifice, and love. Will Doña Inés succeed in channeling the strength of her ancestors into the hearts of her compatriots through storytelling? 

Because when darkness threatens to take over your life, you must call to the taíno bravío (brave taíno) within your heart.
