"Seldom is the point of view of a child the subject of a story for adults. This film shows the negative side-effects a Mexican family must endure when parents seek work in the Unites States, as well as some commentary on race within the latino culture. Filmed in mexico, it has an authentic feel and a wonderful soundtrack. The story is non-formulaic and has the likeable spirit of independent films."

"I was very excited to watch this movie since it was filmed by a Latina in Chicago. What a disappointment! The movie was boring and with very very bad acting and directing, (I know it was a low budget film and made by a student), but it could have been better. I felt there was never a connection or resolution, it just kept jumping from scene to scene. The writer/director tried to include way too many things making it a very weak film. I would have preferred one or two main points only and really developing them. I agree with the other review, this movie does not really focus on the life of an immigrant in the USA and it also but me to sleep."
