After working together on the award winning documentary film, Autumn's Eyes, which shows prison, poverty, and life through the life of a three-year-old girl, Paola and Gloria decided to develop a narrative film. Paola had grown up hearing fragments of her mother's story when she first arrived in United States from Colombia and of her father's abandonment. Paola and Gloria went to work capturing not only the pain, but also the inspiring hope of this family. Their script won a prize at the Independent Film Week's Emerging Narrative section. The winnings included the Panasonic camera they used for the production of the film.
