Collection RED TUCAN


Elena lives in a claustrophobic mansion forced to submit to a level of discipline that she is completely unaccustomed to. She misses her father, with whom she previously led a nomadic life. They had very little possessions and were constantly on the run, but Elena was happy. She knows why they are no longer together. When she was seven years old, her father explained things to her and let her decide for herself. She chose to go with him and she would do so again if they would only let her go. But she is in captivity, and her father is, too. But in his case, he really is in a prison.
