Storyline

While the setting of her Caribbean beach village seems picture-perfect, America's life is anything but peaceful. When their daughter runs away, America's abusive lover unleashes his rage against her. Leaving everything behind, America escapes to New York City hoping for a new life. There she works as a nanny for a wealthy family and at night in a laundry. She befriends three nannies -a Mexican, a Colombian and a Dominican- and with their help and support from relatives in the Bronx, America is determined to bring her daughter back to her. But her past haunts her. America must confront her terror to protect her dream. Written by Anonymous

Decent enough film
28 February 2020 | by tprspanSee all my reviews

Though this was a good film, it could have been much better, in that there were a few scenes which simply were not believable. Overall though, direction, acting, and cinematography were very solid. The Puerto Rico scenes in the first part of the film especially, seemed to give off a feel for what it is like to live on the island.
