Movie Details

Inspired by true events, Paola Mendoza and Gloria La Morte's deeply-personal family drama follows one devoted mother's quest to provide for her two beloved children after being abandoned in a strange new land. Columbia native Mariana (Mendoza) and her two children have just arrived in Queens, NY to be with her husband when he announces he'll be leaving for Miami and they're not welcome to join him. Left to fend for herself and her two young children in an unfamiliar city and no friends to speak of, Mariana struggles to find work while forming a close bond with a single mother named Preet (Sarita Choudury). Before long, Mariana has found a way to make some money through recycling, and her 10 year old son has stepped up to the task of becoming both father and brother to his impressionable young sister. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
