This sensitive coming-of-age drama, a 2006 Sundance Film Festival award winner, tells the story of Magdalena (Emily Rios), who, on the brink of her 15th birthday, finds her comfortable existence shattered by the discovery that she’s pregnant. Cast out by her parents, the once-privileged teen finds safe haven with a great-granduncle and a gay cousin (Jesse Garcia), who introduce her to a world far different from her gentrified middle-class life.
