But when ICE raids threaten her family, Ashley is forced to become the breadwinner, working days in the strawberry fields and nights at a food processing company.
As a little girl, my mom often said,
"Once you get the tortilla to puff up on the stove,

If you work hard, you can get to your dreams.
Dream big and work hard.
