Magdalena is the daughter of a Mexican-American family who runs a storefront church in Echo Park, Los Angeles. A few months before her fifteenth birthday celebration, she falls pregnant – but how and by whom? When her religious father finds out, Magdalena is forced out of her home. She moves in with great-great uncle Tomas and her tough cousin Carlos, who was thrown out by his parents. As Magdalena’s pregnancy grows more visible, she, Carlos, and Tomas pull together as a family of outsiders.
