This is a touching story of two sisters, six-year-old Ana and eight-year-old Lidia. It's time for the family's annual Christmas tradition making tamales. Ana helps with the dough while Lidia spreads it on the cornhusk leaves. Ana wishes she was older so that she could do what Lidia does. As the years pass, Ana is given more and more responsibility with the tamales, but being the big sister, Lidia always does more.
