The Greatest House in the World

The Greatest House in the World

Every day, Rocío, a Mayan girl living in the Guatemalan highlands, accompanies her pregnant mother while she tends the sheep. When her mother goes into premature labour, Rocío has to tend the sheep on her own. She whiles away the time playing with a friend when it happens: one sheep—the smallest—goes missing. Now Rocío must guide her flock through the rugged mountains in pursuit of the lost lamb, alone.
