Lourdes says good bye to her children. She hopes she will see them again.
Don't forget to go to church this afternoon
Enrique went to live with his father. he would get packages and clothes. The phone calls with his mother were short. He wanted to see his mother again.
When will mom be back?
She will come home soon.
In the next few years, Lourdes jumps from job to job, hoping to find enough money to bring her children into the United States and make them legal citizens. She wires money to them, and those are her happiest days. She has a little girl, Diana, which Enrique doesn't know. Lourdes starts to struggle financially and decides to move to North Carolina.
I need to go to another place. California is no longer full of opportunities as if was before.
Who is Enrique?!?!
Enrique starts to rebel. He refuses to make a mothers day card, and gets suspended 3 times, while he repeats a grade 2 times.
Soon Enrique started doing drugs. His girlfriend, María Isabel, couldn't get him to stop. His family members also begged and plead but he refused, he was too addicted.
It is hard. I can't quit.
Why can't you stop doing drugs? Don't you get what they are doing to you?
Soon Enrique realised that his mother would never come home. He needed to go and find her by himself. He set out to find her.
