A native of Morelia, Yesenia Corona tells her story: from her early childhood in Chicago to her pregnancy as a teenager. With two children at 17, she falls in love with a man, who promises to help her get her Green Card. One day when she goes with him to drop off some packages, the police stop them and find drugs in the vehicle. Imprisoned for ten years and then deported, Yesenia has lived apart from her children, fighting for custody of her from Mexico.
