by Lagartijas tiradas al sol (Mexico)

When Gabino was six, his father came into his bedroom and told him his mother had died. Years later, Gabino felt an urgent need to discover who his mother had been.

Tracing her life and loves from her Costa Rica birthplace to Mexico via London, this is the story of Gabino’s investigation. It’s a thriller.

Gabino Rodriguez is co-founder of Mexican company Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol, known for spellbinding multi-media shows based on real events and personal stories. Founded in 2003, they have won acclaim across the world from Paris and Vienna to Santiago.
