Marcelina lived in a small cage on the balcony of Senor Raul's cantina in Mexico City. Every day she would lay eggs and Senor Raul would turn them into delicious huevos rancheros for his customers. Senor Raul loved to sing. Every night he would serenade Marcelina with his sweet songs. Every night Marcelina would dream of the day when she would not have to live in a cage.
