Sugar Skull! is a joyous, heartfelt adventure featuring musicians and dancers sharing the tuneful traditions of Día de los Muertos. Young Vita doesn’t understand why her family is throwing a party for the dead. When a candy skeleton springs to life from her abuelita’s cemetery ofrenda, Vita finds herself on a magical, musical journey to unravel the true meaning of Día de los Muertos.
