User Reviews: Refreshing to see authenticity and the reality faced by many Dominican Americans. The hopes, the dreams, the challenges all represented in this story paint a true picture of our lives. Much needed in a time period where polarization of politics, the arts, culture runs rampant. We must continue to fight for representation of our own stories. We must create a space for our stories to be shared.
I was so proud to watch in HULU and SHOWTIME! Proud to know that films like this are being supported. Proud of the actors and most importantly proud of seeing Dominican American Culture reflected in film.
