A Cuban folktale about a cockroach who doesn't know anything about love and marriage. She is skeptical when her grandmother gives her advice about finding the right suitor, but she is surprised when she is right in the end. Awesome pictures and very entertaining. Animal substitutes for humans make it even more interesting.
