Blue Skies for Lupe

A simple, but gripping story based on the real-life adventures of a Mexican immigrant born with physical disabilities. Lupe’s mother, Mami, leaves for America to get the best care for her daughter. They cross the desert at night and arrive in California where their new life begins. Mami works as a farm laborer, and while in the fields she sings Cielito Lindo to little Lupe. It means beautiful little sky, just like the blue skies of California and Mexico.
