a nine year-old girl from Guayanilla, Puerto Rico, and her mother journey
to New York City, full of high expectations, to join her father who has
been struggling to set up a decent home for them in the Bronx. The world
of Guayanilla where unemployment is rampant, poverty is the rule but a strong
support system of family and friends keeps spirits high is compared with
the world of New York City, a bleak concrete mix of overcrowded tenements,
joblessness and crime that slowly grinds the spirit down. A portrait of
two realities, if not worlds, that exposes the colonial condition of Puerto
Rico and how it gets played out in a very personal way.
