AMELIA Y LAS ABEJAS

Elena is at her uncle’s house in a small countryside village for a few days where she doesn’t know anyone. Her uncle is a beekeeper, he loves bees but, Elena is afraid of them. At the village, time passes between the stories told by her uncle about his great love, Amelia who recently passed away, as well as, the discovery of the truly fascinating bees’ world (its perfect internal organization, its environment function, its shocking reproduction ceremonies…), and a strong-growing friendship with the only boy in the village, Ambrose. The amazing talent the boy has with bees, his personal manners, so different from the city boys she is used to, makes Elena realize she has unexpected feelings towards him.
