Leal' tells the story of a woman who is driven back to the place where she was born.Told in magical realism style the main character describes her childhood memories in the times of feudalism when a lord and his vassals had a contract based on loyalty and shared a large estate where peasant families lived a humble life together with their farm animals.As if in a carousel the car circling around the farmland compares to her life , tangled around her conflicted feelings about the economic disparities between the two social classes she grew up in.The animal kingdom becomes an example for a more just life, where animals rule humans with kindness ,respect and equality.
