Marichuy does not seem like a woman who likes to be in the spotlight. Nevertheless, she decided to take a big step and became the first indigenous woman in Mexico's history to run for president. Life in Mexico is marked by discrimination and violence in many places, especially against women and indigenous people. Every day, ten women are killed in Mexico. In LA VOCERA, filmmaker Luciana Kaplan shows the challenges Marichuy, whose real name is María de Jesús Patricio Martínez, faces in order to stand for election.
