There's No Place Like Home: The Story of Mom
|What could bring a person to abandon their own child? Could you ever be the same after living in poverty for so long to living in middle class? Why is it that America is considered the land of opportunity? Could you ever be the same after moving to a different country? Is it possible that a person can succeed educationally and financially after living in poverty? A young Mirian living in poverty-stricken Ecuador has no idea who her father is. Her mother has left to be with her new husband leaving Mirian alone being raised by her ill grandmother. One day her estranged father wants to bring her to his life in America. He wants to repair a relationship with his daughter and her residency has been approved. Mirian is scared at first but her grandma convinces her of the amazing opportunities America has. Mirian, although reluctant at first agrees to go in order to feel belonging to a family for once.
