La cábala del pez [co-written with José Andrés Ardila] — This is the story of a loser. In September 1995, in a Godforsaken village on the Colombian coast, a number appears on the scales of a bocachico fish. The whole village wins the lottery thanks to the number found on the magic fish — the whole village except Marleny, the only person who decided to bet on a different number.
