Hoping to providing a better life for her son, Rosario (Kate del Castillo) works illegally in the U.S. while her mother cares for nine-year-old Carlitos (Adrian Alonso) back in Mexico. Unexpected circumstances drive both Rosario and Carlitos to embark on their own journeys in a desperate attempt to reunite. Along the way, mother and son face challenges and obstacles but never lose hope that they will one day be together again. Director Patricia Riggen's film is not only a heartwarming family story, but also a subtle commentary on the much-debated issue of illegal immigration. Co-starring America Ferrera ("Ugly Betty").
