  • Day of Baptism, 6:30pm. Esperanza is waiting for her mother to return with the new clothes for the party. When she opens the bags, she realizes that her mother forgot to bring her new shoes.
  • I forgot. Too late now. I'm tired. Whew!
  • What about the shoes?
  • Look at my shoes, they're so old. They're the shoes I wore to school and they don't even match with my dress!
  • Esperanza is ready to go to the party but is upset because she does not like the way her outfit looks.
  • Hurry up! Uncle Nacho is coming in his car, and we have to hurry to get to Precious Blood Church!
  • The boy asks Esperanza to dance. Since she was embarrassed by her feet and shoes, she rejects while everyone is watching her, including Uncle Nacho and her mother.
  • Mom, my feet are swollen and they hurt!
  • Esperanza, will you dance with me?
  • No, thank you.
  • Uncle Nacho asks Esperanza to dance. She does not want to at first, but ends up enjoying it.
  • C'mon Esperanza, you are the prettiest girl here, will you dance?
  • Yes
  • Esperanza realizes that her shoes don't matter as much as she thinks they do. Her and Uncle Nacho dance while her mother along with the boy who asked to dance watches.
  • Wow, its like dancing in a movie!
