Puerto Rican teenager Carmín dreams of living with her mom in America, but when her hopes are suddenly dashed she ends up emotionally torn. Immediately afterwards she is confronted for the first time with her natural father. He’s spent years in jail and then moves in with Carmín and her strict grandmother. Initially, Carmín doesn’t like the charming newcomer, but father and daughter slowly become close. In the meantime, the hormonal maelstrom of puberty does its job: Carmín becomes a woman and that causes great confusion, mostly for her. In this empathetic coming-of-age drama, a sensitive girl (wonderfully played by Miranda Purcell) with so many complex growing pains that the coming together of things like savage disappointment, separation anxiety and developing sexuality lead to a dangerous mix: a complex, ambiguous, deeply hurt teen wants to be loved.
