Ana suspects that the victim has a red jacket and wants to call for an ambulance. The father, who is quite traumatized, pretends that the victim was a dead fox in the middle of the road and goes further.

The short story captures the essence of a family drama where the child has the most to suffer because of the separation of parents. The cause of the accident only reveals the father’s frustrations that he is not part of his girl’s life and the pressure he feels in his relationship with the girl’s mother.

Lines:

”I really cannot come and see you whenever I would like to.”
