his wife and house to Hurricane Mitch in Honduras, Pablo illegally immigrated
to the United States in an attempt to offer a better future for his five
year old daughter, Cristina. A few months later it is Cristina's birthday,
and Pablo borrows his boss's truck to surprise his daughter at school and
take her to the cinema. On the way there, a dog jumps into his path, and
Pablo quickly jerks the wheel. He loses complete control of the truck and
a tragic accident occurs. Wild thoughts frantically cross his mind - he
