Pedro’s teacher gives a weekend homework assignment that is supposed to be fun for everyone, but Pedro is worried that he doesn’t have anything to do for his cultural heritage project. Through a conversation over dinner Pedro’s Abuelo tells him how exciting his cultural background truly is, and together Pedro, Abuelo, and Pedro’s father go into the attic to rediscover the family’s títeres, puppets, to help create an exciting project.
