Federico likes to think of himself as a great storyteller, but his friends know that most of his stories are wildly exaggerated. One day Federico is telling his best friends the story of how he was in the middle of the great river the Rio Grande during a huge storm. However, once they hear that there are hackberries nearby, they rush off, leaving Fedrico's story unfinished.
