La Gringa - English Version

3 Male, 3 Female

Carmen Rivera Price: $9.99

La Gringa is about a young woman's search for her identity

Marķa Elena Garcia goes to visit her family in Puerto Rico during the Christmas holidays and arrives with plans to connect with her homeland

Although this is her first trip to Puerto Rico, she has had an intense love for the island and even majored in Puerto Rican Studies in college

Once Marķa is in Puerto Rico, she realizes that Puerto Rico does not welcome her with open arms

The majority of the Puerto Ricans on the island consider her an American - a gringa - and Marķa considers this a betrayal

If she's a Puerto Rican in the United States and an American in Puerto Rico - Marķa concludes that she is nobody everywhere

Her uncle, Manolo, spiritually teaches her that identity isn't based on superficial and external definitions, but rather is an essence that she has had all along in her heart
