Information for the Audience: 

The film is in English with Spanish subtitles and on as well. If selected will always try to get to as many festivals as possible. There are times festivals clash and times I am filming and can't get away but in those cases I am happy to film a Q and A and send to the festival. The film is about love and acceptance. The need to be independant, loved while trying to balance family and tradition.
