Julia is a high school graduate who dumps her gangster boyfriend, Mercurio. Her father is crippled in a hit-and-run, forcing her to become the family's main provider. She gets a job with a tailor but only after disguising herself as a boy - Julio. Her job takes her into the high society world of a young lawyer/aspiring director named Alberto. Add to that, her childhood friend, Juan Felipe, and there are three suitors competing for Julia's love. As if being torn between two lovers (and a very jealous Mercurio) wasn't enough, she then has to deal with the antics of Deborah and Barbara. These two ladies are obsessed with Alberto and Juan, respectively. Written by

An awful lot of people will likely point out that i am an American commenting on a Mexican program that was likely not even aired in the United States. Read on and i will explain how i came across this lovable story. The first few episodes of the series are very energetic, the writing is good and the editing is certainly not sub-standard. the flaw with this show and with many other soap operas in my perception was that "Pequena" became slow and laconic about the third episode in. The story of Julia or Pequena begins with substantial changes in her life. She is forced to work to pay for her fathers medical bills (i'll say that without giving much away.) and in the relationship department her life is fairly shaky as well. For the viewer there is a certain brightness that one would imagine permeates through the title credits and even the commercial caps, but the show is not itself much like this. The show is actually quite dark in my view but well worth viewing.
I will say that the only reason that i watched this show was because it was one of the slower soaps that have come out of Mexico. As a primary English speaker, this would help me in developing my understanding of the Spanish language. I am not sure whether or not this was ever broadcast on American television, I watched the series on VHS. If you have a chance, go ahead and check out Pequena, you may be impressed.
