María Cecilia Sánchez as Margot
Actor Maria Cecilia Sanchez plays the role of Margot who works along with Juanquini and El Nato. The latter two of them made a Christmas wish that they would be brave enough to change their lives and Margot serves to remind Juanquini of this as she continues to work with him.

In addition to this, she has also been invited to participate as part of a jury and cultural developer in national and international film festivals.
