My sister lives in the East Coast, I live in the West Coast. When she saw the film, she enjoyed it, but she thought that the tribulations of the Muñoz family could not be real. I, on the other hand, have seen first hand that the problems they face are faced by many of my friends; parents and siblings cannot communicate well due to language and cultural barriers, kids join gangs, daughters get pregnant at an early age, and the list goes on. That is why I loved the film. It is real, and it still gives some hope to those who are in a similar situation.
