Rose, an undocumented Filipino girl, dreams of one day leaving her small Texas town to pursue her country music dreams. Her world is shattered when her mom suddenly gets picked up by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Rose, facing this new reality, is forced to flee the scene, leaving behind the only life she knows, and embarks on a journey of self-discovery as she searches for a new home in the honky tonk world of Austin, Tex.
- I found it. I think you are going to love this. Ah, let me see. Ta-dah!
- Yeah. Your mom was about 19, and I was 17.
- Y'all look the same as you do now.
- That was a very long time ago.
- How come you stopped talking to mom?
- I'm not sure. Your mom and I lived very different lives in the US. I saw her about five years ago for lunch. But then my husband--
- We have the same necklace.
- Yeah. Your Lala gave this to us. Your mom and I used to be very close. I guess we just drifted apart.
- This whole time, you were right here. When dad died, you know, Ma and I could've really used your help.
- I know. I know. And I'm sorry.
- I'm gonna go for a walk, get some fresh air.
- OK. Don't stay out too long.
- I won't.
