The protagonist of our story is the little Mariana, an Afro descent girl, who is distressed by the way her indomitable hair curls on her head, so much so that she cannot comb it, there is no comb, bow or cream on the face of the earth, that can untangle it. Mariana, with the help of her mother, will understand that her beauty lies in her rebellious nature, and that, like her hair, she does not need to be imprisoned, but on the contrary, she needs liberty, so that like the sun that shines high in the sky, her hair will show its majesty. And being fluffy and unruly it can become the most beautiful in the world, as long as her owner, manages it to see and love its beauty.
