With an increase of immigration sweeps happening around Austin, Texas, a first-generation Mexican-American child named Ana, struggles with having an “American childhood.” As her 7th birthday approaches, she can’t think about birthday cake or piñatas, she can only focus on her fears for her family’s future.
