Reafirmar y repensar nuestra identidad para no ser deslavados por las embestidas de la globalización, que  todo lo aplana y vuelve hipoalergénico e insípido. La historia se vive en el presente de la primera persona, pero se cuenta en pretérito y plural. Ya no lo demostraron los dinosaurios, el pasado es un gran combustible.
