Sometimes an ugly duckling becomes more than just a swan.


In the streets of Santiago, Chile, Isabel, a young homeless girl makes a scream of rage that is the last sound a gang tormenting her ever hears.

Deep within the city, a family feels her cry and sets out to find her for her sake as well as theirs.

Never straying far from Isabel, Skunk Mountain, a homeless pile of walking filth, visible to only the neighborhood kids, maintains a guardian presence that is key to her survival in a world where, beneath the very ground they walk, a dark ancient intelligent entity prepares to unleash forces that will devastate Chile.


Sometimes that swan has claws and teeth.



The Girl with all the Pain continues the adventures of the Brown family from the Aliens, Tequila & Us series.
