Her mother Beatriz is an undocumented domestic worker, and as ICE raids increase, Ashley fears her mother may be deported. Directed by Emily Cohen Ibáñez and written by the director and lead character, the film premiered at South by Southwest in 2021. Using poetic language and imagery, the film explores poverty, immigration, and inheritance.
