Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
There is not very much happening in this story about Chuito, a man who goes to the big city of New York to look for work, and then has his wife and daughter come join him from Puerto Rico. Both little Angelita (Marien Pérez Riera) and her father Chuito are seriously handicapped by not speaking English - she because of not understanding classmates, potential friends, or teachers, and he because he cannot get a decent job. The resolution of their language problems, set against a backdrop of cultural differences as well - may not be the best solution for Angelita and her mother.
