This is three scenes from Esperanza Rising. The first is when Esperanza said Miguel and herself could never marry. The second is when Tio Luis proposed to Ramona. The third is when Esperanza thought the train car was gross and Ramona was mad at her.

I have a solution to your living arrangements. A proposal actually. One of marriage.
