ESPERANZA tells the story of Mercedes Urive – a Mexican immigrant who pays the price for trusting the United States with her hopes, dreams, and rights as a new mother. Inspired by the voices of Mexican families separated at the U.S. Border, ESPERANZA offers a personal look at an inhumane public policy.
(NOTE that you can purchase “Pay it Forward” tickets if you’d like to support the cause even if you’re unable to attend!)
