Mariaelena, age seven, lives with her family on their farm in the mountains, where sunny mornings give way to rain in the afternoon. See how they and their workers roast coffee, shell macadamia nuts and milk cows; learn how the Mayans kept the land fertile and enjoy her brother and father playing a duet on the marimba.
Nine-year-old Jorge lives in the city of San Marcos. His family includes his twin brother and eight-year-old nephew. Watch the boys practice with their band; see his Dad, a doctor, find a kidney stone using ultrasound; join the family for dinner at their clinic, and then follow them to Family Day at school.
