Maria Fernanda...

What is this, Luis?

This is a girl. She started the trip with

us in the north, but she never finished it.

What did she die of?

I think of sadness.

Did you speak to her?

Only with the eyes.

And what did you talk about?

I wanted to tell her

not to be sad.

Because it was very bad to leave that place,

but it was better comming here.

But i didn't have time.

Professor, where is my bulletin?

Where do you live?

and 80 too for geography.

And, this, this is a ...

a good sign, right?

Is good, yes, Mrs Lindu.

Thank you.

The maximum grade is 100.

That't. It's good that it is good,


Missis Lindu, i did come until here

personaly to bring you the bulletin...

because... i wanted

to tell you...
