Pussy is a curious and rebellious girl who lives with her parents and an extravagant grandfather who wears a green striped pajama jacket and drinks coffee every twenty minutes. In addition, she has a different sister: Manuelita de Quita y Pon, with 47 chromosomes instead of 46. That chromosome (or extra bit) makes Manuelita funny, a rogue, a liar and above all very peculiar, something that the “ crow children”, who do not stop laughing at her and harassing her. Will Pussy and her sister Manuelita de Quita y Pon manage to get rid of these children with sharp faces, feathers and bulging eyes, who don't know how to do anything other than squawk? 47 Pieces is the story of a special girl told from her sister's point of view, of the fact that all the children constantly ask her why she is like this and she doesn't know what to explain, the ambiguity in which she finds herself because she loves her already. Sometimes it causes her problems, and makes her look different... A tender and humorous story about diversity and the importance of accepting others as they are.
