An enchanting and original story about mountain trees and bullies.

Even though he’s 12 years old, Remigio is afraid of masks. But there is a reason for that: in his village, Pocacosa, people go crazy around Carnival time; hidden behind scary masks, they raise hell and Remigio knows that his schoolmates will pick on him because he’s the top of the class. So he has no other choice but running away to the mountains, where he will learn how to prepare himself. With the help of the old hermit Bonifacio, he will understand that fear is not a weapon to use against others, but an emotion that we all must feel and master.
