Lucha and the Ekeko

Marisol is a shy, recently orphaned, middle-schooler. Today, with the help of her adoptive mother, Elena, she rummages for items to sell at her school’s fundraiser.

When Marisol stumbles upon a peculiar doll, Elena recognizes it as an Ekeko – the souvenir/gift from an undocumented migrant girl named Lucha. This prompts Elena to recount the colorful story of how Lucha (and her Ekeko) opened her heart … to eventually receive Marisol in adoption.
