"Years ago, young lovers Héctor and Lilia dreamed of a brighter future for their family in the United States. Héctor left Mexico first, to secure work and housing, but when Lilia, desperate to be with Héctor, impetuously crossed the border with their infant daughter, Alejandra, mother and child were separated, and Alejandra was never returned to her parents. Now, four years later, the family finally has a chance for reunion, but the damage wreaked by their traumatic separation may well be irreparable."--
