Synopsis: Libertad González, puesta en prisión por un crimen que no revelará inaugura el club de lectura semanal de la biblioteca, leyendo a sus compañeras de prisión de cualquier libro a su alcance, desde Los tres mosqueteros hasta Gu’a Fodor’s de puertos del Caribe. La historia que surge, no tiene nada que ver con las palabras impresas en esas p‡ginas. En su lugar, ella relata la historia de un ex profesor de literatura, prófugo del gobierno mexicano, que se reinventa como troquero de larga distancia en los Estados Unidos donde se enamora de la mujer que dará a luz a su œnica hija. Cuando repentinamente, Joaqu’n Gonz‡lez, se encuentra solo en la ruta con una bebita, nace la compañía Transportes González e Hija. Padre e hija hacen su hogar en la cabina del camión de 18 ruedas y comparten todo—aventuras, libros, comidas en los paraderos de camioneros y recuerdos de la mujer que fuera la madre de la chica — hasta que un día la niña se convierte en mujer y un encuentro fortuito con un hombre la provocan a rebelarse contra otro.
