Academy Award Winner
Inocente is a fifteen-year-old undocumented immigrant, who has been homeless for the last nine years. She refuses to let her dream of becoming an artist be limited by her status. The extraordinary sweep of color on her canvas creates a revolutionary world that looks nothing like her own dark past. Irreverent, flawed, and funny, she now channels her irrepressible personality into a future of her own making. The hope in her story proves that her circumstances do not define her, her dreams do.
