Synopsis
Audience Award: Best Feature

After immigrating from Columbia, Mariana's husband abandons her and their two children, Gabriel, 10, and Andrea, 6. The rent is due, there is no food on the table and Mariana has fifty dollars to her name. With no one to turn to, she must find a way, in a strange city where she barely speaks the language, to provide for her family, financially and emotionally. When Mariana's homemade empanadas don't sell, she turns to the city's trash - collecting cans in order to put food on the table, and the family finds the most stability they have known since their arrival. Mariana, Gabriel and Andrea take us on a remarkable journey where we bear witness to a family's commitment to survival and their unrelenting hope for the American dream. [adult content, subtitles]
