Camila es hija de Salome Urena, la famosa poetisa dominicana de finales del siglo diecinueve que instigaba revolucion con sus apasionados versos, se caso con un presidente y lucho por educar a las ninas de su querida isla. Para Camila su llamado a la revolucion es parte de su herencia. Pero Camila tambien ha heredado la confusion y el dolor del exilio y tiene solo dos baules llenos de papeles y efectos personales para iluminar el corazon y la vida de una madre que nunca llego a conocer de verdad -- y asi tambien descubrir su propio ser naciente.
