Working mom Alma (Marlene Montes) has single handedly raised her daughter, Angel (Isabella Orrego), on tough love, home-cooked comida, and lots of prayers. But on the eve of the all-important SAT, Alma discovers her daughter isn’t at home studying. A schooling and la chancla await Angel at home—but so does a creeping realization that more’s at stake than just a test score. A sacrifice from Alma’s past weighs heavy on their present; now, Alma fears that her worst nightmare may soon be their reality.
Will the American Dream cost them a life together?
