La Vida Efímera

Vicenta, daughter of a Spanish mother and father, returns to the country where she was born. She returns to Malabo, the city she left as a child to work in the general Hospital. She hardly remembers anything of Guinea, and through her daily work, discovers terrible plagues wich affect the African continent, such as malaria; which is still the principal cause of infant mortality in Equatorial Guinea.
