Madeinusa (mad-ey-new-sa) is a 14 year old girl growing up in a remote village of Manayaycuna in Peru. She lives with only her sister and her touchy father — no mother , because her mother left the village to go to Lima , or at least thats what her sister says. Madeinusa was chosen to portray the Virgin Mary in the yearly tradition of “tiempo santo” (holy time) in the village. She seems sure of what she wants through out the “holy time” due to the fact that during tiempo santo there are no sins because “god is dead”. (in her words)
