Peretera Maneta (Spell My Name)
What ensures is a journey of a sophisticated young woman whose city upbringing contracts greatly with her new found environment. Her reluctance to form a relationship with other folks takes an about turn as the events at the school unfold. She discovers a friendship in the places she never expected - her students. We follow her as she develops a mutual relationship with one of her special class mute students Maneta. With little time to her stay in the school, it is up to her to unearth the discoveries by this arrogant city woman and will local folks believe her?
